Staying Weird

hey people,

it’s been forever! or at least around two months since i’ve written here. in the meantimes i had surgery, moved to new york from ecuador after a year of living there and watched my money troubles worsen. had to take a break from writing while my shoulder recuperated and tried to adapt to living in the states again. it’s been weird.

but it’s a good time to work on my zine (everywhere all the time twooo) and hopefully have it out by next week. it’ll be 32 pages, quarter-sized, black and white and typewritten (and available on etsy at my shop, where you could order issue one for $2 & free shipping). i’ll scan copies while it’s in progress and post them here, on facebook and the tumblr page along with photos and stories from the zine and probably some scans of the first issue. this one will be legible though!

talk soon,
