I have to say that this boardello has given me the incentive to start writing again and sometimes I like to put in things that happen to me during the day. Once in a while I embellish to make it funnier or more poignant. Fortunately I have a rather, shall we say, twisted dark kind of Ambrose Bierce sense of humor and I'm not sure how it's received. This medium doesn't really give you the inflection that comes across in a voice, like say "A Modern Proposal" and we all know what happened to Swift.

Any constructive suggestions? Should I continue because I'm sure some of you are not sure about what you do either and need a helping hand. I know I've had professors that say I should but I'd really like to hear it from you.
