diagnosis: you have no sense of humor, or even an accurate gauge of
what’s funny or not — members of the opposite sex and even your own
mother have told you this for years. It’s a problem for which there is
precious little professional help. But fret not — you needn’t hang your
head and resign yourself to a life of misguided awe in Jim Belushi.
Part of the solution: join Brad Schreiber, author of What Are You Laughing At?,
this Saturday, August 26, at 3:00 pm for a discussion on using humor
for character development, transitions and to create a brief tonal
change from otherwise serious prose and/or screenwriting. Intended for
both writers of humor and those with no sense of humor at all but who
desperately need one (for their work, of course), this event will also
include a Q&A and book signing of Schreiber’s aforementioned tome.
Space is limited in this intimate discussion of the craft, so please
RSVP to ensure your seat by calling (800) 272-8927 or visiting The
Writers Store at 2040 Westwood Blvd., Los Angeles, where said seminar
will be held. And if more needed information is the name of your game,
well, by all means, contact Dana Hahn via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
