    To Funny Day 6, Savor All the Flavors of Romance: Humor

    We all need a few laughs, and I have found that humor is essential in dark fiction. Of course it has to flow with the story, and is often of the ironic or satirical type, but the characters sometimes need a break. And the author and the readers as well.

    I use humor a lot. The snarky New York style in particular. Alice's Miss Foster's Folly uses humor to enhance the characters' actions. Andrew's humor in The Doe and The Dragon is a welcome respite.

    Stay tuned for some excerpts. And remember, there are daily prizes still open on 4 of 6 threads!

    Congratulations to our two winners so far.

    I love humor in the stories I read it makes the characters seem more real to me.

    My favorite authors are the ones that make me smile, giggle, or get me strange looks when I laugh out loud. Sometimes it's the off-the-wall stuff that hits me the hardest.

    I like humour as well, and I agree with all of you that it's an important part of a story and of the characters. I don't remember ever setting out to write a funny story, but I do try to include some one-liners in what I write.

    My writing hero is Richard Laymon (RIP). He wrote some of the darkest stuff I've ever read but never seemed to take his stories too seriously which I think was part of his genious.
