"After failure comes a new opportunity for success..." Or something like that! Basically, I got the idea for Just Laugh once I got tired of getting rejection letters from other publications...I figured that if no one else wanted to publish my stuff, then I'd do it myself! I've been writing humor in one form or another ever since the 8th grade when I wrote my first "big" piece and it's just sort of evolved from there.Why do you do what you do?
It's something to do! Seriously, though, it combines three things that I've always enjoyed doing very much: stroking my own ego, helping others out and, most importantly, making people laugh. I know what it's like to get slapped in the face by editors and their assistants, so it's great to be able to give writers and artists a chance when somebody else won't. As far as making people laugh, we've got one of the best line-ups around, so I know that there's something on our site to make just about anyone fall out of his or her respective chair...What's your inspiration?
Total world domination.Which piece are you most proud of or which do you enjoy the most?
My favorite is still my first true effort, the novel I wrote back in the 8th grade - The Adventures of the Space Patrol -- Episode 1. I poured everything I had into a notebook after school for a solid four months with the dream of being able to sell it to a publisher and purchase a computer so that I could continue my writing. It never did get picked up by anybody, but the fact alone that I had completed something that big told me that I was on to something. Luckily, my english teacher soon gave us the assignment of writing a short story as an exam, so it did prove to have a higher purpose. Needless to say, after turning in an eighty page tale consisting of over 17,000 words, he was impressed!Where do you see yourself in five years?
Living out my dreams in the tropics - ruling the entertainment industry by day from the helm of the greatest humor publication ever to grace the planet, then driving the gem of my classic car collection - a candy-apple red 1969 Chevy Corvette - home to a classy crib on the beach where my beautiful wife is waiting eagerly for me with nothing more than a sandwich, an ice-cold Corona and a smile!Words of Advice...
