Celebrate Earth Day the Write Way, Every Day

The point of celebrating Earth Day annually, I suppose, is to make us all a little more aware of and kind to our environment every day. In a guest post for The Urban Muse, I offer a few tips for writers who want to be a little greener and reduce their carbon footprint while they write about rising gas prices, organic gardening, or anything else.

Copywriters, take note: if you don't subscribe to The Urban Muse, I highly recommend that you do. I've gathered many great tips from the blog over the years, and I bet you will too.
