Okay, so I love so many Klaroline stories. I was reading, reading, reading and had even started writing my own story (Cowboy and Indians) which was getting a fair amount of love and support from readers. Needless to say the majority of what I was finding was a lot of drama, doom and gloom, and angst, because it’s a vampire show, so dark undertones were sort of a given.
That was until I read Paradise for the Lost by liarfaker. It was so funny and creative and made me laugh so much. So much so that I sought Kate out and forced her to be my friend. My little Polish delight, with her awesome comedy and amazing talent.
We started writing a story together under the Penname, Soap Factory, that was so much fun but sadly never got finished. However, writing with her sort of gave me the confidence with my comedy and one day after watching the Big Bang Theory, the plot bunny for Beauty and the Geek formed and away I went.I also found that comedy is hard to write. I’m a very visual person, so trying to convey a really funny antic or speech onto paper is definitely a challenge, and I like to be challenged.
For me the process is simple: visualize the humor, try to convey the humor the best way possible, and then finally make sure my Betas think it’s actually funny. If they laugh…I’ve done my job.
For me, romance and comedy should be molded together more often. It’s great to feel that ooey-gooey feeling in your stomach when reading pretty proses and intense feelings. The ups and downs and growing tension of a new love beginning to blossom, but falling in love can also be silly and embarrassing, and filled with unexpected moments. Moments that you look back on and just laugh at how ridiculous you were. The things you said, the fears you had…I mean falling in love is just a mess, so why not focus on the mess in a fun, lighthearted way?
