We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

The Personal Post (Philly specific post to follow)

So. I have been writing new stuff for my zine. But I have a lot of much older stuff that deals with addiction/recovery/tying it all together. I'm not sure what to do with the older stuff. It legit isn't bad, and I'm proud of the writing that I did while I was clawing my way out of such a gross downward spiral. But the new stuff is mostly about moving to Philly and falling in love with the city, my partner, and various places and things here. They're just so vastly different. 

 

I'm not sure if I should scrap the old stuff and just try for something fresh that better represents where I am now, or if I should try to weave them together, so that the sad stuff isn't so depressing. Or if I should do a self-split, which is an idea that I've always sort of toyed around with. 

 

I'm excited to be writing again. Excited to be making friends with other creative people and putting together some sort of community. It's almost fall in Philadelphia, and the weather is beautiful.

Maybe that is what I will do.

A self-split sounds like an awesome idea, and I'm sure it would be a joy for readers to get to the more positive, current stuff after the older stuff.
