it is best that sarcasm compliments the message that is being delivered by the author and not
the other way around.
2. Humor
Inserting humor into your content can be the key ingredient for a very
lively script. I understand that since you are going to be writing about
different experiences in your professional life, it will be very difficult
to find a funny side of a business deal. However, yo u have to remember
that humor is important to keep your reader engrossed, and to ensure
that your text does not become a boring drawl.
I suggest that while writing your text or while proofreading it, you read it to yourself. Whilst
reading, you must take on the role of a reader and not the role of a writer looking to improve
the text presentation. This will enable you to understand how much you can improve your
writing, and most of the time the answer generally lies in how you use humor.
Even though adding jokes to your text is the essence behind humor, you still need to be very
serious about it. The jokes or humor that you add should not be harsh. Most importantly, you
should not aim it at one particular race or community. If someone takes offence, this w ill not
only get you in trouble with the law, but it will also earn you a bad name.
Always ensure that the humor added is pleasant and generic. I strongly recommend that you
use no offensive language and/or slang, even in jokes. Remember that you are publishing for
a wide audience and since students and aspiring young entrepreneurs will read your book, it
is very important that you do not use offensive language. It is always essential that we use
such tools to only supplement our message, not shift focus from it.
