writing-humor · A group dedicated to writing better humor.
"How do you become a coveted humorist?
Practice, practice, practice.
Writing-Humor is a group that takes humor seriously.
Enhance the understanding of humor, incorporate it into writing, and
have lots of fun.
1) Submit work for critique.
2) Critique what others submit.
3) Use exercises for humor writing techniques.
4) Discuss what makes humor work and practice techniques
through "small talk."
We frown upon:
4) Posting of previously published work.
This is a good group, and anything that drags it down changes the
List-Owner to List-Ogre very quickly. He not only lurks for trolls,
he trolls for lurkers. This means you should participate in Our Plan
to avoid being deleted. When you get too busy, create a way-out
excuse or humorously tell us what projects hold you hostage. If you
just stop participating... Well, let's not go there.
Participation is what makes this group great, so wade in and have
fun! Contribute. Tell bald-faced lies (providing they are original
and in good taste). Entertain us, teach us, learn with us and we'll
all do just fine."

Well, at least I turned up two 'humor' groups. I'm not counting the
noes devoted to humorists because I wouldn't call them places
devoted to writing humor but to the humorists. HOWEVER, you can
always find them, either by typing in specific names or else by
typing in 'humorist' for a genereal search and seeing what turns up.
