@mishellbaker I have some feelings about the frequency versus intensity debate. It's good to practice daily, sure.

@BestGirlGrace Paul Chuckle did a book signing a few years ago in my small town. There were queues out the door; probably the most popular book signing event I've known in my town for years. He was nice.
