a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I type up all the text on the computer using Microsoft Word as my handwriting isn't great. Then I print it off, cut out paragraphs, and do everything else cut and paste style with scissors and gluesticks.
I prefer sitting on the ground at the coffee table working while watching TV rather than staring at a computer screen for hours on end.
I think it's good to mix things up. There used to be a zine called "Something For Nothing", by Idy, out of Ohio. He did around 50 issues of it, and never charged for it (hence the title). Every issue I'd get seemed to be a different format, size, etc, and it was always really fun, especially if you collected a lot of them. I've tried to take on that mentality.
For the past 2 months I've been putting together Proof I Exist #13, and it's turned into quite a challenge. I'm doing a limited run of only 113 copies, but each one will be unique. I've used my computer, my typewriter, several rubber stamps, stickers, individual glue-sticking in each copy, spray paint for color, and sewing machines to add pieces of fabric. It's an art project as much as a zine, but I like that it will be totally weird when it's done. (yet still have lots of writing and stories).
