Does Where You Write Have an Impact on How You Write?

Hey there and Happy Sunday to all. This week I celebrated my birthday but will refrain from telling you how old I am. How about I just tell you how old I feel. Nah maybe that’s not a good idea either. Maybe we should just get down to business, shall we? I noticed that a…
