My house mates and I had a zine making night tonight. It has been a very productive night for me. I started out by organizing my clip art in my newly acquired accordion folder. Then i decided to go through and cut out zine backgrounds from various pages i have saved from magazines. Once all that was set, i finally started printing out the text to one of the stories for All Things Ordinary #2. This issue is going to be all stories of things that have happened since i’ve been living in Portland. I have 3 stories completely written thus far and printed and laid out the first one tonight, How My Bad Brains Tattoo Got Me a Job. In my head i’ve decided my deadline is the first week of February, but I don’t know how realistic that is. I have 5 pages done so far (this zine is going to be quarter sized just like #1). I want it to be longer than the first issue (which is 24 pages) so I’m aiming for at least 32 pages, but hopefully more. I still have lots of stories that i want to write, or could write about if i need to. It feels good to have glue on my fingers again.
