and so on and so forth...
how long does it usually take to put an issue together? i know this is going to vary massively so thats my point, to get lots of different answers :P
how do you put your zine out there with confidence and not just thinking *oh my god, what the hell am i doing? who the heck is going to want to read this* (because thats pretty much what i keep thinking whenever i think of doing a zine, especially when i see so many amazing awesome inspiring zines, i just think *what the heck do you think youre doing? putting a zine out there like yours when its nothing compared to those people, you fool* )
as you can see im a bit harsh on myself.
i remember a long time ago in about 2001 when my brother used to be into zines too (hes not really nowadays) and i cant exactly remember the exact words but what he said was something like this .........
"the stuff you write is just crappy space fillers" or words to that effect
so needless to say, ive always had that voice in my head saying *crappy spacefillers* closely followed by *whos going to want to read your rubbish* etc etc
i know this is bit of a moany negative post and i apologize about that, i didnt plan for it to be.
im just curious about how people are confident in their writing etc. but from the awesome zines that ive got in my collection i can definately see why theyre confident etc, because they rule and their zines rule!! hehe :P lol
ive been meaning to start doing a zine again for a few months now, as you can see from my post about it.......
if i could just get over my massive lack of self confidence etc
i just need to work out how so many people can do something that im finding so difficult.
im going to go now. thanks to anyone who reads this :) all one of you ;)
