It is so good that I actually read it!, a major testament in that I am so ill-read I think "Huckleberry Finn" is a type of pie served only at Red Lobster.
That's why I was surprised when Michele asked me several weeks ago if I would like to author a guest post for her blog, Michele Young-Stone, Novelist. Normally in the course of life I'm not asked to do much more than shut up and stand in the corner, so Michele's request caught me quite off guard.
But I was indeed humbled and honored by it. Although now that I think about it, does it really make sense to be both humbled and honored?
Aren't they opposites? WTF?
"Write what you know" is a credo to which many writers subscribe and I subscribe to it as well, primarily because I got a t-shirt and 50% off my subscription. Thus I decided to write about what I know best which is writing a humor blog, or to be more precise, writing an unsuccessful humor blog.
My post for Michele is entitled "How to be a Successful Unsuccessful Humor Writer," and I sincerely hope it will inspire, guide, and support eager new humor writers in falling on their faces just as I have these last few years.
And thank you again for this opportunity, Michele. I am humbled. And honored.
But not both at the same time.
Note: A new and updated version of the post I prepared for Michele containing further research into the subject of failing miserably at writing a humor blog appears here.
Don't miss it! If you've got nothing better to do in 2017.
