A Laugh a Minute

Yesterday I attended a 'Writing Funny' workshop with
Bruno Bouchet, many other members of our writers group,
and writers from other areas. What a great day!
I haven't laughed so much for a long time.
We fractured fairy tales, we made up words,
defined them and then used them in sentences
and we had a ball. After such a sombre week,
with so many legends in Australia passing away
(RIP Steve Irwin, Colin Thiele and Peter Brock),
it was so good to laugh again.

I also saw the prototype of the Collage Poetry Diary.
It is cool and I am really proud of our work.
The diary features quotes from famous writers,
flash fiction (50-worders, one sentence stories),
haiku, 12 full colour collage poems,
and the inevitable Ransom Notes.

We will be doing a
limited edition print run
of 200 diaries.
The RRP will be $20 Aussie
(plus postage).

If anyone wishes to order one,
drop me a line to
disyc at yahoo dot com,
and I will email you an
order form. For overseas buyers,
I can accept paypal.

But don't forget you can WIN A DIARY
by creating an original RANSOM NOTE.
Email your text or jpg to disyc at com.
Entries are welcome from overseas readers
and close on 31st October 2006.

See the previous post for full details.

Sounds like a terrific little workshop! We regularly make up new words as well.

Of course, we also make up advice.

Off to check the details on the ransom notes contest. Just browsed through on BE.

Because 7,8,9:-)

Okay maybe that wasn't so funny.
