I love to write funny, instructional pieces that are anecdotal in nature. I often talk about uncomfortable topics in a self-deprecating and light-hearted way. Two such pieces are Is It Time For the Talk? and How to Survive Unemployment. Sometimes I have a personal experience that I feel the need to write about or sometimes I read an article or book that inspires me. Often it is a combination. I always reference the book or article in my piece. This gives my reader more information if they choose to delve into the topic further.
