In stark contrast to yesterday’s post…
“I live by this credo: Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations. Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something to laugh about if you try hard enough.”
Red Skelton ~ 1913-1997, Comedian
Today, I am thankful for silly things, people, phrases, movies, situations, inside jokes that make me laugh and bring me out of the doldrums, even if only for minutes.
Find your smile today…
Things that tickle me:
Any recent clip of David Hasselhoff (something about his cheesy grin and admittance that since the end of Knight Rider, he’s pretty much a walking joke.)
The Annoying Orange…if you have kids and they scroll YouTube, you know.
Slug Bug! A standing joke between me and my oldest. Oo! Silver one. *punch*
How does this relate to writing? Story ideas can be born, character traits can be crafted, plot lines can be grown. If anything, laughing can put us in a different frame of our creative mind and inspire whole new worlds.
