#18 And Laugh in Four or Five Paragraphs

How to Write a Blog Post I’ve had a very packed schedule for the last month or so. Between travel (Mexico, California, Pennsylvania, and the Tri-State Area), work, storytelling shows, and moving to Brooklyn, life has been a little chaotic. My internal clock is off and my usual routines are almost non-existent. So, I was really happy that today would be a REAL writing day.
