Leslie, one of my email subscribers, asked me a question recently. She said:
“If I were to write a book, how do I write with humour — and still hammer home the intent?”
Good question. I wasn’t sure whether she meant “be funny” or “be entertaining” (they’re not necessarily the same thing).
So I wrote an article about it, which you can read here.
