A Little Humor Goes A Long Ways
I think a little of sense of humor sprinkled in a book is good for literature unless you write text books. I can’t say it’s great for every book even if is fictional. It depends on the genre and the theme.
Even if you write nonfictional books. It wouldn’t hurt to hold your readers’ attention with a joke or two. No, don’t write joke if your book is on a serious issue like domestic violence, genocide, depression.
My way of making people feel better is making them laugh. Laughter can make one forget their problems for a while and it has been medically proven to lower the blood pressure.
When I speak on my books I always add a little humor. It’s a way to help me relax and help the audience get to know me. Loosen things up. I might tell a joke from one of the books. Those who have read it catch the joke and those who haven’t become interested in what the others are laughing about.
One thing anyone who come and listen to me or visit my blog knows. I’m a straight forward person. I don’t pretend. I’ve always been a straight forward person and most people who are real don’t mind my honesty. They say they appreciate it.
Too many have forgotten how to laugh. I know lots of times there’s nothing in life to laugh about. But I want to ask this question…has constantly crying improved anything?
