Funny Horror Memes
What does one get to write a funny horror? Writing comedy, generally, is about wording, style, timing. Adding horror/scary to your funny doesn’t change these “rules”. It does offer you, the author an opportunity to flex your creative fingers, wiggle them, stretch them, tap them on your keyboard and see where they take you.
Want to write down a horror-comedy screenplay or novel? Consider the following:
What you wish:
Solid advice for any style/genre, reading or watching what you wish helps to place you during a particular mind frame. It’s easier to emulate an author you understand and appreciate over one you wade through reading.
Prior to writing an assignment, I re-read books, articles, excerpts from the design I’m looking to supply. consider it as warm-up stretches before running, or playing tennis. I study style, description, dialogue, etc.. Note on style – persist with your own. It’s difficult to repeat another author’s style; however, it if feels right you, be happy to emulate. Forcing uncomfortable style produces awkwardness for your readers.
Pick a topic:
If your story is about mummies, weave a couple of lines in about being bound up. Turn everyday sentences into mummy sentences. You’re writing about skeletons? A skeleton needs his jacket or he’ll freeze his bones off. await overkill here. you do not want your readers to finish your sentences for you.
You have the idea. I love horror. Horror is one of the reasons why I love movies. I must say that dramas are a very close second. Combine the two and you have a winner. Psychological thrillers are great sellers but are more intricate than your average film.
Unless the writer has a psych degree, there is plenty of research to be done to ensure that everything is accurate. It takes a highly intelligent movie to outsmart most of us these days- not to mention the fact that the movie would need to have an added twist of its own to make it stand out from the rest. Some of the most interesting movies of all time are psychological thrillers. Some great examples are The Shining, Silence of the Lambs, Jacob’s Ladder, The Sixth Sense, Fatal Attraction, Misery, Carrie and Psycho.
Try dropping your ghouls, ghosts, monsters in normal situations. While it’s going to not be funny for a teenage daughter to yell over her shoulder(while slumped over her dresser yanking out colors of cloth left and right), “Mom! Have you ever seen my blue sweater?” it might be deserving a smile to hold a teenage ghost pulling out all white frames, screaming over her shoulder, “Mom! Have you ever seen my silk sheet?” Or maybe, a mother skeleton scolding her youngster for not drinking enough milk because she’s worried about his bones.
The exchange talk is funny because not only does the mother take her dolls to the movies, she buys them popcorn. The writer could have finished at “She gets her dolls to the movies,” which would have been cute, but, the popcorn part really stimulates the humor.
There is no set method when it comes to writing a funny fright/scary play. Although, if you remember a few rules, like stretch the cute and follow what you like. Then stick to a theme and make your horror aspects do normal things, you’ll end up with a story that’s worth a laugh.
