“Never forget, we sell fun.”
|Fun or fright? Kind of hard to tell|
And that’s the odd thing about it, isn’t it? ‘Fun’ is different for everybody. Some love roller coasters, some don’t. Some find fun in collecting stamps, some in skydiving. There’s no real right or wrong to it, it’s just the way we are. I don’t know that I’d say what I’ve written so far is ‘fun.’ Some of my short pieces, yes, but the novels, not so much. In fact, if you read one of my novels and said to me, “Hey, thanks, that was a lot of fun,” I’d probably wonder where I went wrong (or what was wrong with you, hah hah). I think that there’s fun in them, amusing lines, segments that make you chuckle, but not necessarily fun. I don’t feel like the sort of person who rights ‘good time stories.’ Though I don’t think I write ultra dark and depressing stuff, either.
Have a great weekend, all.
