Crone-ing

I'm trying to race ahead with Crone as my husband wants to get it printed next week. Monday and tuesday are his last days at HSBC and his last chance to print it. The situation with photocopyng at the Home Office is up in the air. He reckons it'll be fine; I'd rather not risk it for a while because, ya know, the Home Office. But I did go to a photocopiers in Machynllyth. I didn't really get the full details: there was a police officer in there, interviewing the shop owner about… Continue

A wee bit annoyed

I got "Stolen Sharpie Revolution 2" in the post today, through the CornDog distro. I love it; from the size of it, to the content and the way it's laid out. It's a gorgeous book and I can see it being useful for quite a while.



But, there was one sentence that rather annoyed me. It's on page 57 and is the last sentence: "They are also a great way to keep your parents from reading your mail." I'm a parent. I'm 48 and my daughter is 22 and I would never, ever dream of opening her… Continue

Estrones 1

Well, the first issue of Estrones is done. I have a neat pile of 50 copies, all with individual covers: no two alike! Now that it's done, I can see problems. Such as, the lack of a proper way to end it. It just, well, ends. Note to self: write a proper last page, don't just leave it like that. And *facepalm* I managed to have two pages printed the wrong way around. It's a list of 48 things about me (as i am 48), but something went a bit backwards between putting it all together on word.… Continue

Now i can zine!

I've finished my assingment for the Open University course I'm doing. Deadline was today, so of course, I was just really getting into it today! But it's done, tradition as the justification for religious innovation in English Christianity, discuss with 2 or 3 examples. Phew!I actually really enjoyed writing it.

Anywa, now that it's finally done, I can get on with Estrones. And maybe Crone as well.

Boxed!

I bought a very pretty box in Machynllyth yesterday. I wasn't looking for a box to keep zines in, honestly! But it's so cute and those quarter size zines fit into it nicely. It's dark blue with flowers on it, and a picture of two cats on the lid. And i have a zine collection! I got three issues of Telegram Ma'am and two of Culture Slut from MarchingStars, and a copy of Fanzine Yfyntyn and Imaginary Uncles.



I'm still doing Crone, but I've also… Continue

Crone!

I've decided to make a zine, after donkey's years of doing nothing. A few apazines don't count. I came up with the title Crone, since I'm 48. I'm also working on some little minizines, those 8-pagers. That might be fun! I really need to see some zines though. Not that I want to copy or anything like that, but sometimes it does help to see what's out there.



I found a few zines I have in my collection of SF fanzines. Blimey! Were we really so young! And always depressed and… Continue
