Have you ever been asked to wrote something for someone else? I’m not talking about writing fiction and moving between different characters. I’m talking about producing a piece of writing with someone else’s voice and tone.

I’m not a comedian. I dropped out of comedy school because as Freud would say, I’m too anal retentive. (Ironically, I was a valedictorian and I’ve never dropped out of anything) So writing content in her voice is an interesting challenge.
