I Just Don't Have Time

A few ground rules for dating an aspiring writer, professional writer, and or professional animation artist.

It isn't you, it's me and really it's me. I am so busy I hardly have time to think and honestly don't have time for extra drama. . .oh yeah, this is for my friends as well as potential more than friend types.

1) Just because I never call you back or I text you a week later, does not mean I’m not interested, or care about you, our friendship or more. Really, I'm not that deep. I don’t have time to even consider what kind of signal I’m sending or how you might interpret it. I'm just not sending it because I. Did. Not. Have. Time.

I have this problem all the time and I don't have the time to worry about the game of it all. Guys, I do what I do and I don't worry even for a second about the signal I am sending you, sorry but it is true. Friends, relax, you're my friend, I do care, I am just slammed.

2) I don't have time to hang out, so I will send you short text messages and emails that sometimes repeat or make no sense.

I am so busy and know that I won't see you, so I send emails and text messages instead of going out, and maybe that is cold, or whatever, but it is what it is. Guys, it also isn't any kind of sign that I want some huge relationship, so give me a break, because this is me trying. Friends, this is all I can do right now.

3) Speaking of hanging out…when I have a window of opportunity, you need to drop everything. That window might close in 5 minutes and it might not come again until after I finish this script, pilot, novel, animated short, commercial or whatever else.

This does not mean that I am being cold, or don't care about you, it means exactly what it says, this is the window I have. This is for both friends and guys, because I am too busy and can't make plans, so when I am free that is when I can do something and more often than not, it is last minute.

4) If you get a real live phone call consider yourself lucky, it’s the equivalent to spending a day together.

I can't talk on the phone and type, or draw, so when I am swamped with work, please don't expect me to spend hours on the phone with you, because I won't. It's not personal.

5) (This one is for guys) Essentially we’re down to text messages and a booty call.

Because I don't have time for games and courting rituals. I'm not a slut, or a man hater, and am not trying to prove anything to you or your gender.

6) (Also for guys) If I do see you, even if only for an hour, that means I like you. I really don't want to have to worry about compliments, stroking your ego or anything and I don't have energy to compete. I showed up, that says a lot.

This one is self explanatory.

This is my life right now, until the TV show sells, or the screenplay sells, or I am working on staff somewhere.

A few other things are that: I can't make plans in advance more than a day, and even when I do, I may have to break them. If I say I can't do something with you and then a couple hours later change that~it is because I all of a sudden can do something that I wasn't able to earlier.

You can not get upset with me for putting work in front of you when I don't have a 9 to 5 job and don't know when or where, or for how long I will be working~sometimes the hours are round the clock.

This is my life right now, and that said, if you are in my life I do care about you in some way, and I do enjoy your text messages, facebook posts, emails and even voice mails, but when I don't respond right away, just know that it meant something to me that you didn't forget I exist.

Where Has Customer Service Gone? Taos Footwear is Horrible

AVOID TAOS FOOTWEAR unless you want to be treated like shit. Usually I like to take the high road and let things go, but after thinking about this for the last 24 hours, I'm afraid to say that I can't not tell what happened when I returned a pair of shoes that didn't fit me to Taos footwear. First of all, I love their shoes. I ordered four pairs at $100 or more in less than a month, but they don't care about that, they just needed to be right and right meant downright abusive and awful to a paying customer. Beginning of June, I order a pair of Taos shoes and love them. End of June, I order a second pair, the Hey Jute because they were on sale for only $100 instead of $130. The canvas is super tight so I call them up and speak to a woman, Lisa I believe is her name, she was amazing BTW, she is the only one who is decent at this company-or at least who I have talked to.  She said if they were hurting my feet to return them, but they didn't pay for shippi

My Article About the SCBWI and Why It's So Amazing My article about the SCBWI  The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators has changed my life for the better in many ways. It’s hard to explain how a group of book writers and illustrators can do that, but they have. I’m not sure where to start, so I’ll start at the beginning: I’m a writer, who also draws. I worked in animation for many years and have recently worked in children’s books both as a writer and an illustrator. In the summer of 2012 I joined the SCBWI and then, boom, my father died. I was broke and I couldn’t afford to do anything or go to anything. I was not only devastated emotionally, but financially as my job also ended that spring *click the link to read more

Sigh-This Diet Works-Fad Diets

Aren't you getting sick of everyone who has lost a few pounds professing they have found the perfect diet? I try to be positive all the time, but it's just plain annoying, especially when they push it on you. I have friends who have switched to super high protein diets, they lose weight and push it on you like it's the best thing since sliced bread-but how would they know that when they don't eat bread. I went on one of these Paleo diets and gained 20 LBS in a month! 20, yes I said TWENTY and I got a kidney infections. Lost of medical research has said this is a dangerous diet, yet people do it. I am convinced the ones who lose weight are the ones that shovel down three lbs of pasta every night and eat donuts and junk food, so of course they will see a difference. If you did the Hollywood Cookie Diet-and yes this is a real diet-you will see "results" too because it has a low caloric intake. Or the new gluten free fad-no wheat, no flour, ever! "You&#
