so far, people have bought 22 copies of gritmaps.
just a month ago, gritmaps was nothing more than a figment of my imagination. it was a pile of sketches and papers, maps and drawings and writing and lists and GPS coordinates of beautiful places.
when i put it all together and printed 100 copies, it felt a bit crazy. i wasn’t sure how much i believed in myself, but i decided i wanted to believe in myself a whole lot. so, i printed them.
that first copy still blows my mind — a stranger bought the zine, and i am forever grateful. that first sale made it all feel possible, validated the risk, made me stand a bit straighter. i let myself hope, this might actually work.
now, 22 copies down, 78 copies to go.
and a whole van-load of gratitude and hope that this sort of thing is actually possible.
