      Draft is a series about the art and craft of writing. Analyzing humor, as E.B. White famously said, is like dissecting a frog; few people are interested and the frog dies of it. A highly idiosyncratic look at well, what it says on the tin. The art and craft of the short story. I picked it up from my local library because it caught my eye, and because I feel the need to do a degree of "professional development reading" every once in a while - particularly when I'm not getting any writing /5(18).

    In a blog from the Huffington Post, author Siobhan Adcock suggests that in order to master the comedic craft, every writer should take a humor writing class. Adcock argues that studying humor in a structured course teaches writers the fundamentals: That we read to be surprised, that predictability is a writer’s downfall, because delivery is. The book was from the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series and I was a giggling mess. My mother and I couldn’t stop laughing at a certain section where a little girl was crying so hard the sugar cookies she was given were melting. That odd little story started my love for reading and writing humor. Humor is a great way to drag yourself out of a bad mood.
