zine stuff & others  
i am up to about page 30 of my zine, winterspark; i'm struggling to get these last few pages out. i started on the second edition already, a post-travel issue, which is for obvious reasons is easier to put together. winterspark #1 {soulbreaking} is an attempt to step back into my pre-travel self and capture what i was feeling and why. it's just a matter of collating some of my {hopefully better} things that i wrote at the time, but i wonder why i'm so disorganised sometimes. still; it's nice to finally be getting it together. i only started thinking about writing a zine in oh say, january. 11 months to produce 30 pages -- that's pitiful.

note to self: get act together in 2005 !

today was christmas card making until my fingers were sticking together and i was getting goosebumps from sitting outside in the wind, and visiting the craft store cottage rose for 3d paint, amongst other things. i'm watching the australian idol grand final right now and i'm tempted to just skip to the message boards on the website to find out who won because i'm sleepy and i need an earlier night. mondayitis has hit for sure. i'd rather spend more time writing and taking photographs but there's always the evenings to look forward to.

i've been braindead all night; my mind is topsy-turvey with words all over the place and not making sense. too many words.

&edit!- if you haven't given me yr address for a christmas card yet, click here? i'll start writing them up soon & sending them out {really}.

i've been wanting to make a zine since january too. you may be struggling at 30 pages, but you're 30 pages ahead of me!
making christmas cards is so therapeutic! i love wrapping gifts & putting packages together whilst watching christmas films, sitting on the floor, covered in tape & glitter :) that's what christmas is all about!
i'm sending you a christmas package soon :)

perhaps we can motivate {inspire?} each other to do our zines :)
&i will finish your letter & stuff soon & mail it out ♥

yay! i'm so excited to hear you've almost finished your zine. :) I'd say 11 months for 30 pages is pretty good. can't wait to read it.
If it makes you feel any better, it took me just over a year to make my last one. xo

thankyou, that does make me feel better :)
i read giantess #4 when i was staying with alex_faerie {i think you two write & stuff?} -- i loved it, i'm sorry i didn't tell you that earlier. fiction is so hard to write, i think, but yours captures me :)

yes we do write to her, thanks for the link :) she's very lovely.
thank you for the nice words about my zine. i find fiction easier than personal zines. i like the theatrics of hiding behind characters, hehe. i'm trying to write a perzine, but it'll probably take me a million years. yay for travel zines, maybe i'll read yours after i get back, and it will inspire me :)

I love that icon. Did you make it? If so.. what programs did you use?
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on November 23rd, 2004 02:55 am (UTC)
unfortunately no... i got it from this lovely icon maker icon_goddess. she makes loads of amazing ones and i think she has a list of the programs she uses for them too, on her info page or one of her memories :)
