There are two kinds of writing that absolutely baffle me. One is mystery -- I just don’t think I’m smart enough for that -- and the other is comedy. I mean, laugh-out-loud funny stuff. I can write “amusing” and “humorous” and occasionally my words will elicit a giggle. But I would love to be the kind of author that sends readers into fits of uncontrollable laughter.
So how do they do it? I want to know so I bought The Comic Toolbox: How to Be Funny Even If You’re Not by John Vorhaus. Seems like a good start. I’ll keep you posted.
What books have you read that made you laugh out loud?
