Making People Laugh (via @susanjmorris)

Once more into the breach with writing tips courtesy of Susan Morris, this time about writing humorous fiction:

Nothing is louder than the absence of laughter—except, perhaps, for a pity clap. When I asked what people feared more—writing a love scene, a fight scene, or a humorous scene, people overwhelmingly said humor.

As always, a good read. Susan goes through Setup, Twist and Takeaway, giving examples of each.
