We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

So, I've been off for work for the past few days, and have kinda re-immersed myself in zine culture, reading zines and comics, listening to zine podcasts, finishing a long overdue issue of my own and compiling stuff for a best of. I went through a box and found some ooooold ass stickers from back in the day and stuck 'em to my laptop. I made a list of people I'd like to swap with and started writing letters and mailing zines.

Then on the 4th day of non-stop zine-o-rama, I remembered why I took such a long hiatus. It can get overwhelming to focus too long, too hard on the same thing. Even if it is the thing you love most. I have a hard time setting healthy boundaries and tend to go a little obsessive. About everything, not just zines.

So, today i took a day off. Spent some time making other things while watching tv with my roommate. Moderation. I might not always remember that, but I think it's important to explain. I might step back sometimes, but I'm not bailing. Just breathing.

Ditto. And my obsession can often get a bit overboard too...
