IZM: Day 26 Garden

The prompt for my International Zine Month 2020: Zine A Day project for Day 26 was Garden. For me, that meant visiting a story I had written as a teenager…

Faeries at the Bottom of my Garden was a reflective essay that I wrote for part of my creative writing classes at school. Our task was to write something that we could remember from our childhood, but we were to tinge it with elements of fiction. I will leave it up to you to decide what elements of this story are real and what is the imagination of my bitter teenage self…

27 year old me found the making of this zine bittersweet. It reminded me how much writing I used to do when I was younger, and I am proud of my little teenage self… even if the writing was not always great, I was at least doing it! Now, I think real life has taken me over too much, and I do not write as much as I used to. I don’t even make as much art as I used to, or as much as I want to. I really want to change this. Hopefully if I can push myself to undertake more projects like this one, I can crawl my mental health back in to somewhere a little happier and actually make all of my awesome art ideas happen.

I guess you will just have to stay tuned to see how I do with that…
