”Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.” (EB White)
It’s mostly due to this quote that I find myself resisting the urge to write out scripts longhand for my favorite Monty Python skits and tearing them apart to find the gears and levers, the way I tear fiction and poetry apart.
Perhaps I should do it anyway? I’d really like to write something completely, utterly mad.
BTW, +1000 words today. I really want to start writing twice a day to see if I can hit a steady 2000; that would let me crank out the rough drafts for my currently-outlined novels at a much faster rate.
