Day eighteen and my hands are starting to hurt, just kidding! Totally not funny I know but seeing as today's topic is comedy I thought I'd give it a go. I don't think I am funny at all so let's not be too harsh with our words okay internet?
Write a short comedic scene.
Humour can be hard to translate on the page since so much of its success is attributed to body language and facial expressions. Today, try writing a humorous scene between two characters while focusing on using physical movements to help the reader visualise the context of the jokes.
"Kate, I was wondering if you would fancy getting some food with me," he asked her in earshot of me. She scrunched up her nose and looked at me then winked.
"Drew, you do know you're talking to the wrong sister right? I mean I know we are twins but seriously," she said sticking her hand up to his face. Her friends cackled with laughter as his jaw dropped. His cheeks went the colour of my hair. Of course he was talking to the right twin, everyone knows I'm the one with the red hair and perfect Kate has our natural dark blonde which suits her personality.
"Why you gotta hurt me like that Kate?" he said as he pouted and walked away.
"Don't worry Immy, he'll get the hint soon. Maybe it's the hair? Shall we get it stripped?" she asked me. I'm sure she took my eyes lighting up as a yes because before I knew it we were already on our way to the car, friends hairdressing bag in tow.
Was that even humourous? I don't even know. Onto day nineteen!
