Make People Laugh With Your Writing
Writing can make people laugh!
Start small, and on a budget. You could use a piece of paper and a pen, a computer, or even a typewriter. It won't really matter, as long as in the end your writing is on paper.
What to write?
Start small. Your aim is to make your target laugh. Think of it this way: You're a YouTuber. Do you think a YouTuber's first video will be so complex, it goes to the center of the Earth? No. Give it a funny name. It doesn't even have to be unique.
Not: WHY I DO NOT LIKE THE TASTE OF PICKLES AND STUFF LIKE THAT.
Add around 3-4 paragraphs, around 3-4 sentences each.
Ask your friends or family whether they enjoy your writing. Chances are, your family will probably always say "yes," so ask your far-away friends instead who barely even know you.
Simply approach the subject, and tell them "Read this and tell me what you think about it." If they approve, you're good to go. If they shake their head or crumple up your paper, thank them quietly and go back to Square One. Do this until they agree you've got a good piece of writing in your name.
Edit that Paper!
Ask your teacher if you can share your writing with the class. If you want to share something with your co-worker, just do it during lunch or your break.
Present the writing in a confident and mild-loud tone. Don't shout, and don't stammer. All of those could ruin the comedic effect you were going for.
When someone in your story talks, try not to use the same tone as narration. Instead, go with a squeaky-high voice or a low voice. Or just mess up your dialogue. The audience knows its on purpose.
If more than one character is speaking, use different voices for each of them.
Now the audience knows you're a funny person! You should have friends now!
Congratulations! Remember, in your next piece of writing, use the same idea you heard from this blog!
