I’m gonna be thirty in two years if I was going to get famous I would have by now and that bums me out. 

And here are a list of famous authors that have been published at 29/ 30 and older.

1) Tamora Pierce (29, my personal favorite)

2) Clive Barker (33, roughly. Mid 80s is when he was published)

3) Donald Ray Pollock (55)

4) Deborah Eisenberg (30- only began writing to help her quit smoking)

5) Laura Ingalls Wilder - ( Little house on the Prairie? 64)

6) William S. Burroughs - 40

7) Helen DeWitt - THE LAST SAMURAI! 44

8) Charlotte Rogan - 57

9) Laura Harrington - 58

10) Paul Harding - 42

SO DON’T YOU DARE GIVE UP. I was just thinking the other day about how I was wondering when we would get to hear something from you original, (cause you have mentioned that you have ideas in the past) and I’m still looking forward to it.

This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph. 

Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.

If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.

And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.

People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.

Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.

I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.

And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.

i’d also like to add that artists and writers have a right to deny requests they feel uncomfortable filling, for any reason. please don’t get mad at them, especially if no money is involved.

One time we had missionaries over at our house, and my Mom mentioned the fact that there is a Star Wars religion. One of them got so excited that he clapped his hands together and blurted out:

"I WANT TO JOIN!!!!!!!!!!" 

The other missionary gave him a surprised look, and then, I kid you not, two seconds later it started pouring and hailing outside. 

The other missionary just glared at him and went: “Look at what you’ve done.”
