A fresh week, a new question! Yay! Thanks, E. Rawls for your thoughtful inquiry into the depths of my writing brain.
Author and blogging friend, E. Rawls asked:
Hi Rachael! My question: What is the funniest thing you have ever written?
Oh, Ms. Rawls! You have come to the crux of it! I have never written a funny thing in my life . . . at least not that I recall. You see, my sense of humor tends to run along these lines:
What I find amusing is not always translatable for the written word. Or maybe that’s just a cop-out. I laugh at as much as is humanly possible, where ever possible, but I add very little to the written world of Humorous Content. In my stories, I try to add a little comedic relief, but sadly, if I try too hard it ends up falling flat.
Actually, I came across this on Pinterest under humor and quotes:
I think I’m hilarious, but I don’t know how to translate that into my writing.
I’d love to writing something funny, but I have as yet to understand the intricate art of written humor. Want to help a girl out?!
What is the funniest thing you’ve ever written?
How does one write ‘Funny’?
Thanks, E. Rawls, for the question! Sorry I don’t have any grandiose humor to share, but now you know my shame. It’s true, my funny bone is punny (get it? Like puny but PUNny…*sigh*). 🙂
Please leave a comment, question, or idea! I’d love to chat!
