Daft ideas

I've had a bit of a daft idea. You know that it's international zine month, next month? Well, I had the idea of making a minizine (that is, one A4 page folded into 8) for each day. I don't know if I'll manage it, but I'll try to do at least enough for half of the month. If I do any more I'll be so chuffed with my little self!

Of course I'll be up for trades for them at the end of the month, along with my 24 hour zine. In the meantime, Estrones 2 is all done and ready to go!…

I've cracked it!

I can';t believe it's taken me so long, but then I was never very good at layout or anything vaguely to do with maths, shapes and all that kind of thing. But I've finally worked out how to lay out a minizine using Microsoft Publisher. All I did was create a table, with 4 columns and 2 rows, then put text boxes into each cell.

Okay, I think that's what I'll do. Until tomorrow when I'll probably come up with a different plan! Butterfly mind? Who? Fi?!

Meanwhile, I have had a zine week with some lovely zines in the letter box. (I have an American style postbox on the front wall, so the postman doesn't…

thinking about a change of name

I've been thinking, as you do, about changing the title of my perzine. Estrones is Welsh for alien woman, but it's not obvious, unless you siarad Cymraeg. (Yes, okay, I'm being clever. It means speak Welsh.) So I've been considering changing it to "Alien Woman".

It shouldn't be too confusing. I've only put one issue out so far, so it's not going to muck up anyone's cateloging system. So what do you think? Name change or not? And yes, I'm in two minds which is not surprising given that…
