The ‘sparks’ of life that can ignite one’s writing mind…
The paronomasia, a play on words, or pun, is a form of word play that suggests two or more meanings, by exploiting multiple meanings of words, or of similar-sounding words, for an intended humorous or rhetorical effect. Normally the effect of a pun is moans from the audience; and the older they have grown, the louder the groan.
To brighten your writing day, here are ten writing related puns:
– To write with a broken pencil is pointless.
– I told my friend about the creative writing class I took, and she said that she had a simile experience.
– Why do writers get so many colds? They work with drafts all the time!
– The lives of authors are punctuated with good writing periods.
– Where should a novelist never live? In a one-story house!
– Before writing his final version of a story an author has to have a pretext.
– I changed my iPod name to Titanic; it’s syncing now.
– Some people still think that writing long stories is a novel idea.
– I’m reading a book about anti-gravity and I can’t put it down.
– There was a writer who put ten different puns on a blog post in the hope that at least one of the puns would make others laugh. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.
