A Little Bit of Comic Relief by Wendy H. Jones
Type 'quotes on laughter' into a google search and you will get more than you ever bargained for. Well maybe not, this is google after all. The healing properties of laughter are well documented in the medical literature. A jewish Proverb says
"But," I hear you say. "We're talking of writing here. What of that?" Good Point. The benefits to writers are twofold. Firstly when you laugh the brain releases a number of chemicals that relieve stress, reduce pain and make you feel good about yourself. Aint the body a wonderful thing? I can assure you if you feel good about yourself your writing is going to flow better.
Another benefit to writers is that you can use it in your writing. Humour can be used in most fiction books to provide moments of light relief. Even in the most high-octane book a little humour can be sprinkled in. This allows the reader to relax and draw breath. Some fun facts about humour that might give you inspiration
- K is the funniest letter
- 37 is said to be the funniest number
- Hamsters are funnier than dogs
- Most toilets flush in E Flat (If you're writing YA or kids books you're on a winner with this one)
- use the rule of three - set up, establishment, punchline. That's how all jokes are formed.
These are just a few facts to get you going.
But, why am I talking about humour today? The answer - the first book in my humorous crime series is out today. Antiques and Alibis is available in Waterstones, CLC, Amazon, Nook, Kobo, iBooks and all good bookstores. It is in the vein of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, with fewer exploding cars.
I'm joining a long line of ACW writers who write humorous books, Adrian Plass, Fiona Lloyd and Fran Hill to mention a few. I am sure there are many others.
I excited to introduce you to Cass Claymore and hope you like her. It's always a nervous time for an author when a new book is launched.
