Well, we're almost a week into July, so I guess I can't pretend that it's June anymore. Or that HALF this year has passed without me finishing a first draft. Remember when I wrote fast? Yeah...not so much anymore. That, plus I've been editing A LOT, which is the price to pay for writing too fast. Beware of that.
If I'm being honest, editing kind of puts me in a bad mood. I don't like that it does this, but I can't seem to help it. I have to work hard to keep my spirits up—extra anime binges, pizookies, hardcore exercising to counteract the pizookies, Final Fantasy, naps, etc.
I also really like to laugh. So since July is hereby being dubbed The Month of Critiquing (of my stuff AND others), I'm going to need lots of laughs.
This is where you guys come in. Oh, and the contest. (I'm sure you were wondering if I'd get around to that, huh.)
In my opinion, writing funny is one of the hardest things to do. Funny is extremely subjective. It takes a skilled hand to make it work and make it last. I happen to have very funny/witty friends as writers, and I'm constantly in awe of their mad skillz. So for this contest it's all about The Funny.
In 150 words or less, make me laugh. It can be an excerpt from your WIP, something written just for me, poetry, haiku, screenplay, recipe, whatever.
Simple, right? Mwahaha.
Friday, July 9, at Midnight MST. Winners will be announced Monday, July 12.
A little different this time—please leave your entry IN THE COMMENTS of this post. I want to share all the funny stuff!

Now that I've told you to be funny, you can't think of anything funny, huh. Yeah, been there. Good luck!
