Am I funny?
by Loni Townsend
Thank you for having me on your blog, Stephanie!
The thing I love best about Stephanie's blog is that she always delivers pertinent topics with a dose of humor. So many times, I visit her blog and crack up laughing. She'll find music videos that are over the top or memes that express sentiments with wonderful class.
It seems like she's funny without effort.
While writing This World Bites, I constantly asked myself, "Am I funny?" I know I've read things by other people that are intended to be funny, but when I read it, I didn't laugh. Did I just not get it? Or was it a bad delivery? The written word has no inflection to help interpretation.
Humor is subjective, and not everyone appreciates my twisted take on it.
I debated over marking This World Bites as humor. What if people didn't think it was funny? Would it ruin my ratings if I marked it as humor and no one laughed?
I decided to trust my critique partners and beta readers. They laughed. So that must mean I'm funny, right?
Do you write humor? Do you ever fear that you're not funny? Have you come across any humor pieces that aren't as funny as they should've been?
It's her first day on a new world and Cera's already found trouble. Michael, her guardian, has been bitten by a zombie and will soon join the undead ranks.
Everyone tells her there's no cure, but Cera isn't one to be deterred. She's willing to face off with zombie hordes, demon slavers, and black market informants if it means she'll find a cure for Michael. But she's not the only one hunting for something.
Something is hunting her.
Wife. Mother. Writer. Ninja. Squirrel.
By day, she writes code. By predawn darkness, she writes fantasies. All other times, she writes in her head.
People call her peculiar with a twisted sense of fashion, but don't let those understatements fool you. Her behavior is perfectly normal for a squirrel disguised as a human. That's part of being a ninja--blending in.
She makes her home in Idaho with her sadistically clever yet often thwarted husband, two frighteningly brilliant children, and three sneaky little shibas.
Find her on her blog or social media.
