10 QUICK POINTS ABOUT WRITING

Posted on September 4, 2013 at 12:49 PM Comments comments ()
Get to the point. Make that point funny. Repeat.
Or
Sound as if you're making a common point. Then twist that point to go where the audience would never expect.

~
Create your jokes rather than write them.

~
Never underestimate simplicity. It's the quickest way to understanding.

~
If you need for the audience to know something, tell them.

~
A good joke's setup should include tension. The release of the tension is in the form of your punch lines... that sometimes reveal a whole other story.

~
Standup comedy is related to gossiping.

~
Comics are 15 and 30 sec ad writers and the joke's punch line is the product they're selling.

~
Think visually. In pictures rather than words. Visual thinking is emotional. Comedy is emotional. Get it?

~
The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible”.
