new zine idea: Where The Heart Is  
I’d been struggling with writing the next issue of Winterspark zine for the last 5 months; incidentally, I was working on 2 issues simultaneously because the themes I was writing to were so different. But because of my travel plans to the UK at the end of this September for god-knows-how-long, the pressure was sort of on to get them finished before I left - and I was really beginning to struggle. I had writers block for 2 months and didn’t write a thing. Then just recently, lying in bed after being sick for 10 days, the idea came to me. New subtitle, a new and broader theme, one which could encompass everything I had written about and everything I planned to.

This is about belonging and making a difference and falling in love and then out of it again. It’s about standing up for yourself, trusting your instincts and dealing with the aftermath of confrontation. It’s about friendship, living life, and not being afraid to try new things.

It’s about staying true to yourself, and knowing where your heart is.

This is my new idea for the next issue of Winterspark, Where The Heart Is that I started this weekend. Now, if I can actually get this finished before I leave for London, it will be a minor miracle. But I'm trying.

Whenever I hear people talk about not being afraid to try new things, I think nah.. it's about being afraid, but trying anyway.

Good luck getting it finished!
I'm sure you will

Ooh...very exciting!!! It sounds like a very cool issue!!! I think I'd like to read it!

BTW, I went to go see what you were offering for magazine sales...and just had a bit of a question for ya...are you going to be selling a 3-pack or a 4-pack of them once you are done with this one?

well all my other ones are still available right now; i don't know how well I can distribute this one if I ever finish it 'cos I'm going away, so it'll be pretty much a one day sale, really 9unless i miraculously get it finished like, this weekend, hehe). You are welcome to order my other ones if you like, it's $9 for all 3, and then I'm not sure how much this one will be, but I won't be able to sell any of my zines myself after sept 22 until i get back again :X

Hehe thanks!

I was looking at your crafty blog page too and it's very interesting - I'm inspired to try to make lip balm!
