To quote one of my favorite authors:
"Writing is a job for people who like punching themselves in the face, I'm pretty sure."
A lot of times, writing can be very frustrating. Even doubly so since it's all frustration that you're giving yourself. It's not like your boss is coming in and screwing up your day. When something goes wrong with what you're writing, it's your own fault. Which, yeah, kind of feels like you just punched yourself in the face.
Hilarity was definitely one of these cases. After brainstorming and writing for a month, I realized everything I wrote was crap. I went back to the drawing board and created the chapter as you all know it. But I save everything I write, even if I consider it unusable. So, today I don't give you new material, but alternate reality material. I have posted what I wrote of Hilarity v1.0 along with the 2.5 pages of brainstorming notes that would become Hilarity v2.5 (v2.0 was ever so slightly different and simply got written over rather than saved as a separate file).
And now, it's time to make myself a sandwich. Good day.
