i'm sorry for a million updates about nothing. somehow the words are just pouring out and i feel like i want to connect with everyone and say "hi. i love you."

so. hi. and, i love you.

winterspark 2 is up to 37 pages and still going. only quarter size so they're small pages, but the last zine was 44 pages and i felt like i was struggling even to reach that. this one will be longer, i think; it's tempting to wrap it up and get it finished by this weekend, but i gave myself a deadline of the end of the month, and i might as well use that time to make it a better quality zine. sometimes i feel like winterspark 1 was too rushed; well, rushed except it took the better part of a year to complete; but it wasn't the highest quality of writing. perhaps that's why i'm almost too embarrassed to keep distributing it, that i can barely read my own words in it anymore when i photocopy the pages, hoping that no-one will see. i like this one better; it still needs improving, i'm still not completely objective about my work (but who is about their own anyway?) but i feel a little bit prouder of what i've produced and where it's going. i've decided on a theme for winterspark 3 already; i'm going to write as much while i'm in this wild zine frenzy i've been in the last few days. it's nice to have a project that's actually going somewhere, that's close to being completed. i leave so many things half-done.

i'm so excited for back to school sales in the stationery departments of stores; i'm craving for paint, and nearly brought some at the bookstore today at lunchtime, but held off because i don't have any brushes anyway. yet. art supplies make me happy, sales make me happy, and i'm so silly really, but this has been the most creative year yet. a day off in the middle of the week (tomorrow) is such a sweet things indeed.

okay. i promise to stop writing so many entries with nothing new to say. really ;)

edit - oh, and i installed the new version of trillian last night, and now it just crashes everytime i try to start it up. so i might not be around on msn/aol for a little while until i download the stuff to make it work. let me know if you have yahoo instead? sigh.

I would also consider trying to download from https://www.ceruleanstudios.com/ and see if that makes a difference. Its the official site, after all.

trillian.cc works too; that's what I've always used to download trillian and I've never had problems.

Yay new zine. I loved #1 and thought it was all round awesome. How did you make the cover?

...I just remembered something and it's making me feel terrible because I just realised what it was so I have to tell you. Aaaages ago I made an order from your distro but then I was in one of my everything-sucks-so-I'll-just-scratch-the-shit-out-of-my-skin-and-listen-to-Nirvana-a-lot modes and completely forgot about it. Then the distro was gone. So if you received an order and the money never came through and you thought 'the bitch!', I'm sorry that was me.

Did you try uninstalling trillian 2 before installing trillian 3? If not, I'd try uninstalling and reinstalling to see if that helps. That may be where the issues lie.

I just installed over the top and it worked fine for me - something to be aware of is the skins don't necessarily work from 2 to 3, so that may be causing her problems?

Ah, I can't wait for your zine to be finished!
& Back to school sales and art supplies are the best ever :)

You and I both leave lots of things half finished. Hehe! I am happy to hear how dedicated you are though to this magazine. It is really great to accomplish something like that. Good Luck!
