This is everything…

Everything I never knew I needed - my writing is already pretty funny so I never thought I needed this kind of book, but this helps you bottle the magic and churn it out into your novel or play. It’s not just about making characters funny but also likable which is helpful. Will buy all his other books too.

A really excellent resource

Don’t bother with a University course. For the price of a couple of audiobooks, Scott Dikkers has got writing down to a science. This isn’t just a book about writing comedy, he also covers how to work comedy into dramatic stories.

Anyone serious about story writing needs to invest in this series and take as much away from it as you can.
