How to Write Humour

How to Write Humour

Well, that’s obvious, isn’t it, you might say. Write something funny. But is it that easy? Think about it. How many programmes on TV have some people rolling about in hysterics, and leave others cold? Do you see what I mean? Humour is a personal thing, and the hardest part about writing it is that if you try too hard, it falls flat. If that happens too often in your book, then the reader will give up. That is something you seriously do not want to happen. So, how to write humour. It isn’t as...

The World Is not Really Flat, You Know

The World Is not Really Flat, You Know

Journalism – and more seriously – writing, completely sucks today for the most part, despite the enormous democratization of the publishing movement. In fact, it sucks so much that even when your intention is to do serious work and contribute to the public dialog in a meaningful way, most people just assume you’re looking for a job. As a case in point, yesterday I spoke to the Head of Communications for a major multinational company. I told him that I wanted to write a 10,000-25,000 word...

David Thomas looked at his watch. 2:00 pm, he couldn’t keep them outside any longer He got up walked to the door and opened it. “Take your seats, QUIETLY.” He told the class as they filed through the door. He’d already had enough of this but at fifty five he had to hang on that bit longer before he retired. Education had changed, and not for the better in his opinion. When he’d been at school the teachers were like gods. The children respected them, and those that didn’t, knew enough to be...

I Am Demo-Man

Gaston stepped over the wreckage of the huge wooden doors, tiptoeing around the bodies of the tellers and guards. The vault gleamed silver, a red light blinking on the screen of its fancy lock system. “Fire, Boss?” Henchman 1 asked, peeking out of the mini tanks hatch. “No,” Gaston said, waving his red-gloved hand dismissively. “The canon will not take this door. You take it out on the steps and destroy the law enforcement; I hear the sirens now.” Henchman 1 closed the hatch and turned the...

Hell Hath No Fury

Hell Hath No Fury

Alex Benton was a survivor. Most everyone in his city was. Those who had escaped the wrath of the Gods as the Preacher told it. “Hell Hath No Fury,” the Preach had said, his voice pounding into his brain. “No fury like a spurned God. He shall raise His Mighty Fist and pound into dust those who have defiled his sacred garden!” The words sang through Alex's mind like the razor edge of a saw through wood. Standing at a bit over six foot tall, he was a mere twelve years old, but to most people...

Ebooks are not 'stupid' – they're a revolution

21 February 2018 | 10:53 am Books | The Guardian

The head of publisher Hachette has claimed ebooks are a failure – but as an author and a reader, they’ve completely changed my lifeI was a relatively late convert to the e-reader, getting my Kindle five years ago when it became clear that reading 600-pages of A Suitable Boy while breastfeeding wasn’t going to work. After a frenzied few months of almost exclusive e-reading, I returned largely to the traditional printed book for a number of reasons: screen fatigue, a tendency to scrawl in...

Most of Fairfield, in Sydney’s west, speaks a language other than English – and now it has a bookstore to matchWalking into Lost in Books is a little like walking into a daydream. Models of hot air balloons float near a ceiling covered in billowing white fabric. Bookshelves line one wall, murals adorn another. The gently sloping floor is carpeted in bright colours. A pile of cushions and soft toys is heaped in a corner beside some armchairs and a piano sits opposite. It’s a stark contrast...

French Saviour
by Jackie from Australia

It was in the centre of Paris that I was run over. Our ever-faithful bicycles were used to the maximum around the city. It was rush hour, and the reputation the Parisians have of being the worst drivers in the world was justified. Admittedly, we were on the pavement, studiously avoiding the square-hatted policemen who had told me off earlier that day for riding on the path.
We were sitting at the lights, and when pedestrians were shown the green light, off I sped. A lady in a small car hurtled around the corner through the red light, we collided. Actually, I pushed myself off the car, only knowing too well that I could be sucked under. All eight lanes of traffic came to a halt; Paris came to a standstill. The lady in the car was distraught; I was shocked.
Without really knowing what happened, a tall, handsome man picked me up and almost carried me to the pavement, while crooning, ‘Madam, you are ok, non? You are not hurt, non? Madam, you fell like a ballerina, like poetry. I am so sorry. You come all this way to our country to visit and this is what we do to you? I am so sorry, madam. What can we do to make it better?’
My knees were weak, not from the accident but from the smooth, poetic voice that caressed my ears. As I stared up into the beautiful, dark face of my saviour, letting him lead me to wherever he wanted to go, I felt a sharp pain in my ribs.
The magic of the moment was shattered with a, ‘She’ll be right, mate,’ from the unmistakable Aussie twang from my husband as he elbowed his way between my rescuer and me.
Reluctantly, the man let me go. As I thanked him, my heart sank as he disappeared. I think I loved him for a short time, if not him, then certainly the romance of the situation. In true Aussie form, Noel handed me my bike and said, ‘Come on, let’s go!’ And off we went. I was somewhat shaky, but smiling.



Relationships as Teachers by Trilby Johnson

visit blog

Everything you experience in your life, is in relation to something or someone else. It is in many ways the crux with which you define your individuality and from which you will draw on as reference points. Much of our social behaviour is shaped by and through the relationships we have or do not have and how these impact on our sense of self. Read more ->
