Direction and Humor
The book I am writing focuses on overcoming adversity, learning to dance in the rain, and being prepared for life challenges. It will center around the story of my family and Kennady; our daughter born with many special needs. I write about how we move through difficult times and how life was set up or prepared for it.
While preparing to write and getting the concept prepared, I am running into a bit of a challenge. The topic is obviously serious and difficult to wade through. Humor, on the other hand, plays a huge role in my life. It will be very difficult for me to communicate anything without humor.
My question for you is: how can I talk about deep emotional issues and still be true to my style of humor? Will people be ‘set off’ by it? is there anything I should be cautious of? (besides dangling participles? mom, that was for you)
