Hello, zine friends! Here we are at the end of the month. Wow. I’m not ready for December yet. I’m perfectly happy and comfy where I am here in November.
The 30th means it’s ZineWriMo wrap-up time, so let’s have a look at the goals I set earlier in the month:
*Complete ZineWriMo – don’t miss any days – I didn’t miss any days insofar as I did all the prompts, but I didn’t do all the days ON the days.
*Complete all ZineWriMo mini-zines – Nearly, but not quite.
Complete mini-zines: Little Reminders 2, Little Reminders 3
Complete all writing for Don’t Call Me Cupcake 9
*Complete Dear Anonymous 7
Complete Don’t Call Me Cupcake 9
Complete Don’t Call Me Cupcake 9.5
Two main goals and two bonus round goals mean… I win, right? Haha.
Actually, for a rough sailing kind of month, I’m very happy with what I accomplished. Don’t Call Me Cupcake 9 and 9.5 were really difficult to write, so I’m pleasantly surprised I got them completely finished before the end of the month. The Little Reminders were such a lovely surprise in that they were inspired by someone saying, “You’re allowed to be angry”.
What I don’t have up there is Missives From Murray Bridge 3 all finished up, so I’ll throw that in the bonus bin as well.
Not too shabby.
Blackout poetry was my big surprise of the month. I had a feeling I would like it, but WOW do I love it. I suspect a lot more blackout poetry in my future – and maybe even a whole zine.
Thank you to everyone who participated in any level and commented on any of my posts this month. The life of a creator can be a lonely existence, and it’s always nice to know that you’re not alone.
I hope you all had fun, whether you joined in for a day or for the whole month. Please feel free to share any zines whether they were finished or started this month. I love seeing zines at all stages.
With that, I wrap up ZineWriMo 2017.
I’ll be back soon with a zine review.
