Storytelling advice from Hamilton

Well, one month after posting Shakespeare's views on writing (It's Hard to be the Bard), I want to direct you to another link about writing.

You've already seen the HamDoc, right?  That PBS special about how Lin Manuel wrote the hugely popular Broadway play (soon to be performing in a city near you), HAMILTON.  Which explores the act of creation.  Four years to write two songs.  And then all the rest of the songs written and brought to stage within the next two years!
(if you missed this program - click on the link. This link will be live for the next month.)

Well, Chuck Wendig has now written a blog post he calls: Five Storytelling Lessons from Hamilton's America.
Good advice.
