I want to make a zine but I honestly wouldn’t know how to go about starting one. Do you have any advice possibly? 💖
Yeah! I’m no expert, but honestly, it’s pretty simple. You just figure out your content, whether it’s visual art/writing or a combination of the two, and format it to 5.5x8.5”, since that’s what a regular piece of paper will be, folded in half. Make/collect your content and put it on the page.
Once you’re done, have a high quality copy of each page, than find a copy machine to copy out as many as you want, and staple them together to distribute/trade. (I prefer to bind like this, rather than staple).
Also, 8 page zines made with one sheet of paper are really fun! Here’s a how to.
Lots of small bookstores and comics book shops will distribute zines and minicomics, and theres conventions and stuff, though I’ve never been to one.
masculinity is so funny to me bc men deprive themselves of the best things in life in order to achieve it like ….fuzzy socks, fun fruity pink drinks, spa days, lifetime movies, expressing positive feelings in a healthy way, being a warm genuine person
the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.
I feel like I’m at a point in my life where I know I need to advance the main quest, but instead I faff about doing side quests because the main quest is intimidating and I don’t feel like I’ve leveled up enough to be able to handle it.
