A fill-in book from the San Francisco Writers' Grotto, authors of the best-selling 642 Things series.

Focus on a single aspect of the craft of writing with help from the San Francisco Writers' Grotto. Writing Humor starts
with a foreword by author Chris Colin, who offers pointers for
developing your own comedic style. The rest of the book consists of
prompts and space to write, providing opportunities to explore your
voice in various hilarious scenarios. Among other ideas, you'll be asked
to write:

an account of a bachelor, from the perspective of his refrigerator
a Craigslist ad for something you are desperate to sell
a eulogy to a pair of jeans that no longer fit
an evaluation of a coworker in the form of a school report card
a list of embarrassing moments that are funny in hindsight

Perfectly sized to take to a cafe, on vacation, or on your morning
commute, this book is designed for practicing your creative writing a
little bit at a time.
