Hello and happy Saturday, zine friends. I’m afraid my Friday Night Highlights were lost in the continuing frustrations with technology. I’m very lucky that I’m able to address and sort out these things within a reasonable amount of time, it does still get to me every now and then.
Thank goodness for zines!
Make a zine for you and only you
My thoughts behind this prompt are around this pressure that seems to exist for anything and everything we create to have to be ‘saleable’ or ready to put ‘out there’ for the world to see. While it’s awesome if you want to share your amazing creations, I do feel there is value in reminding yourself what it is to create for creation’s sake. To do something for you because it makes you smile or you want to express yourself.
Apparently I needed to express myself.
Okay, so I’m technically going against the idea of this whole prompt by sharing this at all, but it’s only a peek at the cover to help show that I did that prompt. Hahaha.
I ended up writing a letter to my future stuff about some things that are currently happening. I’m not always the best at listening to that inner voice, and that inner voice jumped on the opportunity to get things out.
