Humor is everywhere you look. You’ll find it in a Boy Scout camping trip, a day at the beach, or on full display in the cafeteria. “I Like That Word” is the second installment in “The Daily Gripe” series, an insightfully hilarious collection of articles that finds the fun in everyday living, masterfully brought to you through the unique style of one of today’s best humorists.
- A common misconception entwined with authors is that they are socially inept, how true is that? Not true in my case. I have a large group of friends and am very outgoing and energetic.
- Do all authors have to be grammar Nazis? I’m conscious of grammar, but my type of writing, gereral humor, lends itself very nicely to fragmented sentences and taking liberties with the King’s English.
- If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it have been and why? I’m a big fan of King. His book, “The Stand” was so creative and well-developed.
- What makes this particular genre you are involved in so special? Humor is so important. There is a lot of stress and bad news out there, and making people laugh brings us all together.
- How important is research to you when writing a book? I do very little research. It isn’t necessary for general humor.
- What works best for you: Typewriters, fountain pen, dictate, computer or longhand? I often rough in an article with pen and paper, but then work of a computer.
