Writing

Watch “How to make your writing funnier – Cheri Steinkeller” and then let me know what you think.

I once spent an entire year while in high school writing what was my first attempt at a novel. It was very episodic and almost sit-com like because it was a) cheesy and b) I was working out how to write humour into scenes, from wit to slapstick.

These days there are still a lot of things I have to learn about writing such as figuring out the best way to convey something I want to say when I see it in the way a character moves physically in my head and to turn that into words on a page that conjure up the same image. I think visually – it can be a problem. Maybe I should write plays and screenplays instead.

But I hope this video helps:
