Creative Humor Writing — The Love Contest

It’s time for our July humor writing feature…The LOVE Contest.
A creative writing exercise just for the fun of it.
Tell us what you love about someone.

I love…that my husband treats me like a queen, but doesn’t crown me when we disagree.
I love…that my kids can misbehave and still make me smile.
I love…that the President has a term limit.
I love…that my grandmother knows someone who was seriously injured performing any activity which I’m currently doing.
I love…that the other people in the gym don’t watch me while I’m exercising, because they’re too busy watching themselves in the mirror.

These will be observations:
– about people and pets (not about things or inanimate objects).
– which are often true.  (Let me tell you about my grandmother.)
– which are sometimes tongue-in-cheek humor.
– which are sometimes exaggerated.
– which sometimes point to the inconsistencies and imbalances of life.
– which sometimes play with the language.
– which include your own twist and take on life.
– which make YOU smile.

To enter the contest:
1.  Put on your thinking cap.  Jot down some initial lines.
2.  Ideally, find a humor buddy to help you sharpen your ideas.
3.  Sleep on it (the ideas, not your buddy).
4.  Select your best lines and send them to HumorPowerTips@aol.com.
5.  We need your entries not later than July 15.
6.  We’ll post the results by the end of the month.
7.  The winners will receive a look of amazement when they tell their friends.
