Purveyor of Romantic Comedy

As a purveyor of Romantic Comedy, I'm here to confess: I frequently need a good laugh! Sometimes, Life is just damned hard.

I've been writing Last Christmas, a new romantic comedy for the Love Christmas Box Set, but I've thrown away as many scenes as I've written. Why? Well, a romantic comedy should be funny, not grim. This year, I've had a lot of grim which doesn't create the proper mood.

That's when I knew it was time to immerse myself in humor. When I want to write funny, I watch funny movies, comedians in performance, and YouTube videos.

I read funny stuff too. Lots of it about any subject matter. So I started looking through my vast humor collection which I've accumulated over the years.

I thought I'd share one with you. I don't know who first wrote these "Laws." They've floated around the Internet for years. I think they'll give you a laugh too.

Universal Laws of Life

1. Law of Mechanical Repair
After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch. And you'll have to pee.

2. Law of Gravity
Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

3. Law of Probability
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

4. Law of Course Changing
If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.

5. Law of Close Encounters
The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.

6. Law of Results
When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.

7. Law of Biomechanics
The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

8. Law of Coffee
As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

9. Law of Physical Surfaces
The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor, are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug.

10. Law of Logical Argument
Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

11. Law of Wardrobe
If the clothes you are trying on are really cute, they won't fit.

12. Law of Commercial Marketing
As soon as you find a product that you really like, the manufacturers will cease production.

More Humor

If you'd like to laugh some more, try my September sale book, Cinderella Blue, available at Amazon Kindle and other ebook sellers.

Cinderella Blue is reduced from $3.99 to 99 cents through September 15.

In Cinderella Blue, love means never having to say, "You're under arrest."

Too bad, because Detective Andrea Luft--Andie to her friends--loves those 3 little words--especially when she's saying them to a "bad guy" who SO deserves it. Like the thief stealing designer wedding gowns from San Antonio bridal boutiques.

Andie is an undercover bride about to make an arrest when Detective Bruce Benton barges onto the scene. The suspect escapes, and, as a reward for this screw-up, Benton and Andie are paired together as partners to close the case.

On the surface, this mismatched duo appear to have only one thing in common: their tendency to annoy each other. Underneath though, desire sizzles. Is it just a matter of time before these two commitment-phobic cops yield to the inevitable?

Takeaway Truth

Hope you grab Cinderella Blue while it's on sale.
