Using Dan Harmon’s Structure for Feeling Nothing | Sleep With Me #451

When Scoots “feels nothing” it means it is time for you to sleep. (18:38 Story stats) Tonight Dan Harmon’s story structure will be poorly paraphrased and applied to a Song from a “Chorus Line”. We will be going around in circles while projecting my thoughts onto yet another broadway character, this time by co-opting Dan Harmon’s writing on story structure.

    Today I listened to this podcast. I can see how that IS work. And i Loved it. I was thinking, please slow down your words, they were at my mental speed. I’ll never drift off because it’s too fast. But I think I did. When I came around, you were thanking everybody.

    There was an old tv show where Kevin had a boring teacher. He was amazingly monotone.
    Wish I could remember his name…he did a dry eyes commercial, too.
    I have fibromyalgia and spinal problems. I have to take sleep meds to relax, because all of my pain is on the parts that touch the bed. Science says you don’t get deep sleep on pills. So I treasure naps that I get in without them! You podcast is an amazing❤
