Figuring out New Shit and ignoring The Rest (plus, artwork for CHROMOPHOBIA)

20220207_112916

2022 will be a year of transition, and it’ll be a challenge, for sure. I am trying to tackle so many different things. But, this is because I’ve put so much of myself on the back burner, so to speak. Now, I find myself wrapping up previous commitments. And, personal projects, some long dormant, are finally getting a chance to breathe.

One of these projects, a zine, is coming along. Honestly, and if I am being really honest, figuring out the formatting was the big obstacle (I am not, by trade, one who formats), but I finally set aside a week and got it done. I chose a story and laid it all out and arranged and rearranged and, finally, I had something printed that is starting to look like what I’d been imagining. Sometime soon (likely, very soon) I will do some proofs of this zine, sending it out to a handful of people to see what they think.

Running Around With My Head Cut Off

The newsletter seems to be doing well. However, I have never run a newsletter, or even attempted one, previously. Regardless, it’s doing what I need it to be doing, so I will go ahead and consider it a success.

In fact, I have gotten some very nice feedback, so far, of my non-fiction story, “Never The Ghost You Want” and I am starting to get… ideas. What kind of ideas, you ask?

A Newsletter? A Newsletter! Praise be!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Look at that! I have gone and done a newsletter. Courtesy of some fine folks over at popular garbage fire, Twitter, I decided to sign up for Mailchimp, so as to better court You, my audience. I don’t know all the ins and outs and I will be learning as I go along (this sentence is also a primer on how one lives their life BTW).

So, sign up. I’ll ramble to you! I am to understand that people generally enjoy a decent rambler. At least once a month, you will receive: my idle thoughts; messy philosophies/metaphors; my questionable opinions about, well, everything; the occasional fiction and non-fiction; general news about what I am up to, writing-wise and artistically. These emails will be different from my regular website posts, though some overlap will be inevitable, methinks.

So, go ahead and enter that email of yours in that there box up at the top and I’ll go shimmy into my most comfortable rambler’s outfit.

Thanks for reading, and (hopefully) thanks for signing up.

XOXOXOXOXO
