Writing - Just for fun but for who?


Just for fun


Comedy is difficult and so I have endless admiration for those who can write it. Like so many aspects of writing we produce words for an audience of millions with millions of possible interpretations so it is great when half a dozen like it!!!!


  SCOTTISH COMPASSION

A man was sitting on a blanket at the beach.
He had no arms and no legs.
Three women, from England , Wales , and Scotland , were walking past and
felt sorry for the poor man.
The English woman said "Have you ever had a hug?"
The man said "No," so she gave him a hug and walked on.
The Welsh woman said, "Have you ever had a kiss?"
The man said, "No," so she gave him a kiss and walked on.
The Scottish woman came to him and said, "'ave ya ever been f…..d, laddie?"
The man broke into a big smile and said, "No".
She said, "Aye, well ya will be when the tide comes in.

Now some people will be offended by this, some will laugh their socks off and some will find it mildly amusing. How does that work? Actually it doesn't matter. What really matters is that it is there for people to read. And that is the crux of the matter. 

We write because we love writing we are read when someone else loves our writing.

The trick is getting your work to people so that they may love it. When I go to sleep tonight I hope to dream of the answer to that conundrum!

God Bless
