Humor is most often what makes us laugh and it provides a wonderful connection between people.
Making a joke can bring people together with laughter and defuse awkward situations.
We believe that you can find humor in most situations, so let’s write about them!
How to use:
All you have to do is pick a prompt and start writing!
You can use a timer, write until you meet a word count, or choose a prompt at random and write until you can’t anymore.
Just remember that these prompts are aimed to make you laugh and get you writing!
