This weekend is a rare beast - I actually have it off.
Tomorrow (Saturday) I will be taking part in the 24 Hour Zine Thing event that Tangleball in Auckland is hosting. From noon Saturday til noon Sunday I will be taking part in an event of concentrated creativity.
It is the first time I have done the 24 Hour Zine Challenge, I have done NaNoWriMo and the like before - a month of writing madness but I have never done a full on challenge in such a short space of time.
I am… Continue

This week's round-up is a bit late because I just arrived back from a retreat with the Washington Bus, but it is here nonetheless! I did some exploration this week by way of photography and, when indoors, did some writing and drawing on my Wacom tablet. I will learn you yet, Wacom!…

I used to stay up late, tapping away at my computer keyboard or reading a book when I should of turned the lights out hours ago.
Getting older I try to get to bed at a reasonable hour, especially if I am working the next morning. While I could stay up as late as I wanted to (being an adult does have its advantages) I find I have lost my night owl tendancies.
However when I am inspired, that is a whole other story. There have been instances where an idea has struck me… Continue

I have been experimenting with short fiction this week, or at least scenes that tell a standalone story; I have written about everything from aliens (as part of my new serial fiction, The Observer
) to time travelers, allergies, and South Asian lovers. Check out what I've been writing (and knitting in between keyboard marathons) after the jump! …

Hi all, today's post is about blogging
, media, and the freelance market. Since it was pretty long in typewritten format, I decided to record it; listen up, and then leave me a comment about what you think!
(The transcript is available below, and it includes links to some things I mention)

This weekend, I had the pleasure of attending an all-day set of writing workshops at Richard Hugo House in Seattle. Since I have been learning to beat writer's block
, this day was a necessary shock to my system - an entire day of learning, writing, and revising is just what I needed! And, because I believe in the power of sharing, I thought I would disclose…

As I was trying to rouse myself from a literary stupor this week, I searched around the internet for some inspiration
to fill myself up until I could no longer stand the feeling of not writing. One of the articles that I came across that most inspired me was The Rumpus

I made my first zine (and so far the only perzine I have ever finished) back in 2002. I was about 16/17 and was very proud of it even though I rushed to get it finished in time for a concert.
The last zine I made was back in 2005/2006 (I can't remember which year exactly).
With 2011: The Revenge of Print I was all set with enthusiasm and ideas to do zines this year.
I have various bits of paper around with what I wanted to have in issue two of On A Sugar High. Skipping… Continue

So I've been reading zines and had it in my head that I wanted to make one for years. And today I finally sat down and started to do it. I had my glue stick. I had all the stuff I had written and wanted to include.
Then I freaked out. I got scared that I would mess it up and it would turn out horrible. Finally I got over myself and started making it, but I am scared that it won't be good.
Will someone reassure me that it doesn't have to be perfect? What was your first zine… Continue

As a fulltime writer and publisher, my work life doesn’t start at 9 and end at 5 like most. If anything, my day starts around 10 in the morning and ends around midnight, six days a week.
Of course, I’m not sitting in front of a computer for 14 hours every day. I’d go into severe burnout if I did (i.e. I pulled a 17-hour shift the other day and paid for it bigtime the next). But my work day has no off switch. I get the bulk of what I need to do done before 5pm, have supper, spend time… Continue

i organize every monstress around a central monstrous theme and this time, i'm torn between two, "witchiness" and "ape attack!" i already have a bunch of reviews of movies where the horror is built around old women (bette davis' entire late career) but i'm having trouble with writing the other stuff. every issue also has chapters of a pulp fiction story in it and for "witchiness" i'd like to write something kind of agatha christie or dorothy sayers for the fiction. but writing in that style… Continue

Welcome to H.O.P.E. (Healing through Our Personal Expressions)! I decided to begin this zine in order to offer consumers a place to express themselves. It is said that healing often comes from self expression, no matter what the form. In some case, people feel better after journaling their thoughts and experiences. For others, writing a poem or painting are ways to help on the path to recovery. "It is a well known fact that writing has a positive effect on an individuals sense of well being,"… Continue
