Letter from the editor

Good Morning! its a beautiful day

Dear Friend,


Smiley Face, Happy Face or Comedian in our natural language-Tagalog we called it "Comediante", it reminds me of the late Dolphy our comedy king actor, or the late American Comedy Actor Robin Williams wherein they gave naturally a good laugh to audience, in the way how they act through their body language, voice or movement.

Or in other words, Smiley Face/Happy Face are those people who can give you a good laugh.

In writing, how can we create and make our readers give a more good laugh?
In my opinion and through my own observation here are the following styles for you all to consider before planning to write or give a good laugh to your readers or audience.

*Bulbp* 1. The Question and Answer Style -This is the most basic style in writing in the Comedy Genre that can produce a good laugh, the short sentence or the simpler the better style.
Just like for example:
Q: What do you call a fish without eyes?
A: Fsh. *Laugh*
But if you like to make it complex, you can add more of it like this, but the more you add this style, the more you make it complex, but make and only concentrate it in one subject.

*Bulbp* 2. The Cause and Effect Style - This is mostly describing a movement or action, or as the title said: the cause and its effect especially if its funny.
For example, I ate potatoes this morning so the result: I have no choice than to contribute air pollution after. *Laugh*
The main concentration here is the action or movement of the characters that are funny, this style were mostly seen in mute movies like the cartoon Tom and Jerry where they seldom to say any words but their action speaks more.

*Bulbp*3. The Biography or Experience Style - You have a funny experience or adventure- you can write them down and share about them and mark it- its not a fiction but its a fictitious. *Laugh*

*Bulbp* 4. The Personification Style - Personifying something like cartooning is fun and very funny especially if the theme is a comedy. Just think about your pets on how they talk and gossiping about you. *Laugh*

*Bulbp* 5.The Playing with words Style - This is often used between two or more than people who are in conversation, especially if trying to make the talk to be less formal, this is effective to meetings where a confrontation is expecting. *Bigsmile* You can find this also in some anecdote where the funny words are not usually vulgar but when you ponder it, its funny.

But, remember my friend mostly a good joke either in writing or in verbal, will produce more a good laugh and can be more effective when one has good positive thoughts. Positive thoughts through entertaining the good thoughts and dump all the negative thoughts can help to stimulate or boost the brain in producing happy hormones, and once you already a tune yourselves and you start to feel good, it will reflect in your writings and in you.

So think positive and Write On!

Samberine Sig.
