The theme of the ‘zine is burnout, particularly of staff on conventions. I chose to write my article on avoiding burnout and how working on the Helsinki in 2017 Worldcon bid helps keep me energized on fannish projects. It’s definitely true that I keep busy, but choosing projects that are fun for my free time helps keep me on track for things that simply need to get done but I’m burnt out on. So I use Helsinki as a cookie to savor after I’ve gotten some progress on a less invigorating project.
