Things have gotten pretty hectic my way. So please excuse for not answering, etc.
Hope things are going better for you.
Some thoughts on DA's 11th anniversayI feel nothing. Definitely not joy.
I enjoy the friends I have met here. I like hearing the wonderful stories people tell of the DA community coming together for them in crisis,etc.
The DD's and prizes people have received.
Yet for all the talk of how DA loves you (from CEO to staff with some exceptions) it seems like empty words to me.
So excuse me if I don't jump up and down with joy.

$spyed answered my question and iScribbleHello:
Hope your on your way to having a good weekend and if not hope it gets better.
In my last journal I ranted on why doesn't DA have a way to publish books like Blurb = http://www.blurb.com/
I got an answer:
On March 14, 2011, deviants from around the world participated in a special featured chat with deviantART's CEO (aka) Angelo Sotira ($spyed)
You can read the full transcript of what else people asked here = http://news.deviantart.com/article/146653/
"*Rickbw1: Hello Angelo. Will DA be adding in the shops a way to create books for art collections, literature, etc like Blurb, and if so when? And if not why?
$spyed: We'd likely partner with a company like Blurb, they're amazing, but first we need to change the submission process to add some procedures for how we integrate with such companies. That is stuff we're looking at and developing against right now, so, absolutely! "
See what happens.

The Hunt For Gollum - LOTR PrequelThere's a decent fan made movie The Hunt For Gollum - LOTR Prequel = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H09xnhlCQU
"dramatising Aragorn & Gandalf's long search for Gollum. This 40 minute film, made by fans for fans is based on the appendices of LOTR and was painstakingly shot on a low budget as a homage to Peter Jackson's trilogy and the writing of J.R.R. Tolkien.

10 ways to become more productiveDear, deviantart fellow artists
It's difficult to feel motivated and stay focused on our goals all the time. But how to achieve what we want, how to not let procrastination stand in our way?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Set goals
Think about your ultimate goal - what is that matters to you the most, what would make you incredibly happy and excited. Write that down and work your way through to it. It will be the reason, the reminder for you to look forward in those times, when you'll feel less motivated.
Try to write also weekly, monthly and yearly goals - be reasonable and realistic regarding that, but don't be afraid of challenges. They have to be S.M.A.R.T. - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
2. Plan tasks in previous day

five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
Keep in Touch!
