A little humour goes a long way


I agree. I try to use humor whenever I can, especially if I’m dealing with something heavy. My problem is, I have a dry and somewhat odd sense of humor, so I never know whether anyone’s going to get my jokes until I publish.

I like to throw in humour when I write. I think it helps keep the reader interested. It can’t go into every scene (like if someone dies) but here and there it helps keep the book flowing. Also, the funny bits help me keep going when I’m editing…and re-editing and re-editing.

Here’s an example that might come in handy. We’ve all read posts warning us not to do this or that rookie writing mistake. True? This post by Joanne Harris is also about not doing rookie mistakes…but it’s funny. Ahhhh.

A little humour goes a long way to help make any post or book more readable.

On that note…did you read the one about the penguin?
