Laugh Free, Or Die Hard

The Happy Shell - Writing Humor (CCOM 1019)

Biff Mitchell's The Happy Shell is a four week foray into the funny bone of life. Merciless flash fiction writing exercises will drain your soul and leave you an empty shell ... but a happy shell ... a shell immersed in the fine art of neither overtelling nor undertelling. Your shell will know how to incorporate humor into a work of fiction, a poem, a speech, a marriage proposal.

Your shell will be invited to parties and encouraged to say funny things. Your shell will learn the Five Ways to Bring the House Down, and the Ten Deadly Sins that Kill a Good Joke.

Note: The desire to make 'em laugh might help a lot in this workshop.
