Writing tip: Mine your life for nuggets of the human condition that are unique yet universal.
So, what’s the point? Mine, excavate, dig deep into your life for this stuff and use it to inform your writing. Or just use straight on. There’s no greater humor than that found in the world around us. Learn to laugh at yourself. Use wit in your writing whenever you can. Humor lifts the spirit and as my brother Clark says, it gives the reader a break from the dark stuff. I’ve been adding bits of comedy when and where my story, Once a Warrior, allows. The story is better for it; far more entertaining. And my hero, far more human – because we humans are funny, even, maybe especially when we’re trying to be heroes.
We’re funny, REALLY!
