As a (hack) humor writer, you would think this would be an easy assignment—but it is proving to be quite challenging and mind-splitting for me.
“Come up with a 500 word funny story for readers age 2-12.”
First off, I don’t know of any 2 year old that can read, let alone sit for 500 words that would simultaneously entertain a 12 year-old—talk about a broad audience.
But if I can find those magical and elusive 500 words, it’s worth $1000.
I think I’ll keep at it.
