Common universal themes are the ones that grab me when I read a book or a blog. The questions most frequently addressed are: WHY me? WHY this? WHY now?
As a writer, I try to weave a thread of humor through my writing. That is how I handle the hard answers to the hard questions. Humor keeps me from spiraling inward. How do other bloggers/writers handle those same questions?
