Writing Satire

In by Chris on September 10, 2010 at 8:53 am

I think the best way to be a satirist is to not realize that you are one. Many of the people I’ve met who say that they write satire are depressible and have a hard time being loose while writing. It’s like the comedian who tries hard to be funny and suddenly lashes out at the audience when not enough people laugh at his jokes (according to his own conception of their value as comedy). On the other hand, if you think you’re being serious and everyone else laughs at you, it is perfect – assuming your ego’s not too big.
