The sun is shining, everyone (humans and animals alike) is healthy or nearly 100% recovered, and the weather is beautiful. I feel like I can finally breathe. Metaphorically, anyway. It is spring, and the hayfever is strong in this one…
*I’ve been working on updating all the pages here on the blog and making things less confusing. Spring cleaning. Check out the new About & FAQ page to clarify anything or pose a question of your own.
*The Zine Review Index is also now up to date. (At least, until Thursday. Haha.)
*One last reminder to let you know that you can now listen to me read Don’t Call Me Cupcake 1: Introductions on Bandcamp for free! Click here to check it out as well as other zine creators reading their work. <3
*This is a bit of a strange one, so bear with me. I am working on not self-sabotaging. Any time I start feeling like something is going really well, I start to get nervous. Whereas I was fine doing something before, I suddenly become nervous and feel like I can’t do it. Brain freezes happen regularly, and my self-confidence tanks. It’s happened before, and I’m trying very hard not to let it happen here.
*I am still working on spring cleaning the blog, so if you have any ideas for anything you’d like to see/read, feel free to let me know.
*I am more lurking than working at the moment, but I am still loving the whole concept that is ZineWriMo.
*I’m already incredibly behind with NaNoWriMo, but there’s still plenty of time to catch up. I think. Maybe. If you’d like to be my writing buddy (and very possibly feel a lot better about your word count), you can find me here.
*I am working on editing the audio versions of Don’t Call Me Cupcake 2 and 3. They should come out later this year.
*I’m currently working on Don’t Call Me Cupcake 6, which is about spring in Australia, zine projects, Wanderer being in hospital, and other fun stuff.
*Another last reminder: if you hadn’t already heard, We Make Zines – the place for all things zine – is closing down at the end of this month due to a dramatic rise in cost. I’m not able to do much, but if you know about coding and site migration, be sure to stop by this thread and let Quasifesto know that you’re willing to help out.
*I’m actually dreaming of moving away from Etsy as a shop front, as it’s looking like Etsy is one of the more expensive places to run a shop front…
*I’m also dreaming of Festival of the Photocopier (Melbourne’s zine fest in February)! It slipped my mind when I thought I’d be moving out of Victoria before February 2017, but
*Which means I need to prioritise the button/badge maker. Squee!
I hope you are all having a wonderful start to your week!
