deliver a real note to my real mailbox
- I love snail mail! It’s almost as good as meeting someone you’ve only known from conversing online or by telephone. It’s so delightfully real. Send your missives and parcels to…

some important notes about how I use email, social media and the telephone
Because we all use these tools differently.
Most of my working hours are spent in my studio. It’s where I create the juicy materials that (hopefully) rock your time-management world and where I most love to be. And for reasons of creativity and productivity, that space is internet and telephone free.
I visit my office most weekday afternoons (that’s Pacific time) to answer email. In between those spaces, we might pass in the hallways and have the chance to say hello via Twitter or Facebook.
If you don’t receive a reply to your email message within 1-3 days, please know I’m probably just immersed in a project or considering my response (some questions are easier to answer than others). A reply is coming.
Same goes for blog comments and Twitter/Facebook conversations. I simply don’t spend much time hanging out in the hallways of the Works – and may not see that note you’ve left on the bulletin board until the next time I emerge from my studio (though I will be delighted to find it there when I do).
As for the telephone… I use it almost exclusively for scheduled conversations. Again, for reasons of creativity and productivity (and perhaps one too many gigs as a receptionist), a ringing telephone is something I usually avoid. Email is the best way to get in touch.
