As much as I had hoped to avoid these kinds of posts this year, it seems my wishes and reality don’t quite mesh together completely.
As I mentioned last week, I am in the midst of dealing with a flare up. Flare ups can mean a variety of different things to different people. And flares aren’t always the same…
I won’t go into too many details here, but I will say that I am sorry that I am just not up to posting Happy Mail Monday today. I do have some lovely mail to show to you, but people deserve better than me showing off their amazing creations while I’m tired and in pain.
So for now, I will thank everyone who has commented and sent messages wishing me well. It’s not yet been a year since my diagnosis, and I am still very much getting my mind around how my life has changed.
I’m going to set Happy Mail Monday for next week rather than trying to push through and make one tomorrow. I will say I’m crossing fingers for Episode 2 of Nyx Reads.
Thank you once again to everyone for all your wonderful understanding and patience with me. This is just one stumble, and I will be working hard to get Sea Green Zines to everything it can be. ❤
Hello, dear friends. This is just a little note to let you know that I’ve been dealing with a flare up this week. Things are feeling like they are improving slowly, so I should be back with you for Happy Mail Monday.
Hello Monday, hello November, and hello ZineWriMo! Welcome everyone to this year’s edition of ZineWriMo.
I am so excited – as usual – but especially excited because I know some people are discovering ZineWriMo for the first time! Hello to new ZineWriMo-ers too!
What’s ZineWriMo then?
If you’re not familiar, ZineWriMo is the zine alternative to NaNoWriMo created by Jasper (I no longer have any social links for them) a few years ago. I am another happy participant who decided to dive right in and create a prompts list for the occasion. I try to focus on a list that gives a bit of challenge but isn’t too stressful.
In Jasper’s words:
ZineWriMo is a new idea that came to me in wanting to combine the original NaNoWriMo and zines!
ZineWriMo is November! We focus on making one, or many, zines in November! Our only goal is to create zines, no word count requirement!
Dive in, join up, and let’s get ready to zine!
Here’s the list once more if you’d like it. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like me to send you it in PDF or larger .JPG form.
There’s no happy mail video for you today. However, this is a small announcement.
Sea Green Zines will be taking a break in April (not for the full month, but for a few weeks), and I am looking for guest posts to feature here on the blog.
Whether you’d like to tell your zine story, share how you get your creative mojo going, review a zine, or something else zine-related, I’d love to post it here! Multiple submissions are more than welcome, so host a day, a few days, a week – whatever you feel inspired to do.
The deadline for all posts is 31st of March.
Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
