One thing I’ve found super helpful both when making zines and working on other writing projects is to go to writing hang-outs.

I was introduced to that concept when doing NaNoWriMo and going to my first “write-in”. Basically, just ask a bunch of creative people to come work with you in a café/someone’s house/some kind of public space/… Everybody works on their own project, without pressure to share anything with anybody else, but whenever you need to take a break you’ll have people to talk to, and it can be really inspiring to spend time and talk with other creative types!

I also find it pretty great that it “forces” me to dedicate a certain amount of type specifically to my zinning/writing, because I have trouble keeping the good old procrastination at bay sometimes!
