Writing Humor One Edit At A Time
by P.L. Frederick

Writing well is a learning process. And when it’s about humor, it’s a fun learning process. For readers out there who are curious about the editing part of the process I’ve been using (hi Mom!) here you go…

1. Think stuff up. Write stuff down. Ignore quality.

2. Let them sit overnight or overweek. Don’t think about them. Stop it.

3. Re-read. Toss the yuck but keep what gives you yuck-yucks. For better comedic impact, shorten the keepers to the least number of words.

4. Read them aloud to someone else. Choose a person who won’t laugh out of politeness but who is capable of laughter.

5. Cry. [Read more...]

Top 10 Dos and Don’ts Learned from My Last High School Reunion

by Blythe Jewell

So, last week I received the Save-the-Date for my 20th high school reunion and most people might start panicking now, but not me.  Because every stupid, jackass thing someone can possibly do at a high school reunion, I already did ten years ago.  I’ve basically spent the past ten years engaged in a series of random Oh-shit-I-really-did-that cringes and winces and I’m choosing to see the 20-year as my opportunity to redeem myself, rather than a chance to make myself look like even more of an asshole.  Of course, those are what I like to call “Famous Last Words” – but we’re going to think positive here.  At least I’m going in armed with my List of Dos and Don’ts – wisdom gained through my own pain and humiliation.  And now you can, too.  You’re welcome.

1. DO stay in touch with at least two people from high school.   The first one is the person you will force to go with you to the reunion so you’re not sans high school clique.  The second is your back-up, in case the first refuses or gets sick or dies or something.


2. DON’T wear the tube dress.  Unless you’re cool with holding your boobs in all night.
