I've been thinking a lot about comedy in writing lately. I don't know why. What I've decided, though, is that I like laughing. And if an author gets me laughing at least once per book, chances are they've engaged me enough to make me a loyal reader. Five times, and they've really accomplished something. More than that? Well that's where it starts to get touchy for me.
I don't have much put together on comedy at the moment, but I want to explore the subject over the next couple of weeks. If my day job didn't suck all of the attention out of me, I might be able to come up with something more coherent for today, but I want to ask one huge question: What makes you laugh?
