I have to admit to being stuck. I've been doing the Writers' Bureau article writing course for more time than I care to admit to - and the thing that is stalling me at the moment is writing an article that is funny. Now it's not the writing of the article that is the problem - so many funny things happen in my life, and I find such a lot of things funny in life - I do have a warped sense of humour - that I have plenty of material to draw from. It's finding likely magazines that would want a humorous article that's stopped me in my tracked.
This is very unusual for me, as I can always identify potential markets for the other articles I pitch and write, but for some reason this latest assignment has left me stumped! Now some kind writer soul did suggest The Oldie as a possible market - but I've looked on the Internet and tried to find a copy in various newsagents but have failed miserably to find one so I can do market research on it.
Does anyone have any other suggestions for other possible markets for a humorous article, or even know where I can get hold of The Oldie? (Here's an example of my strange sense of humour - in that last sentence I did a typo and missed out the words 'get' & 'of''! Ooh matron.
Does anyone else ever have these ridiculously silly potential market blips?!
Happy (funny ha ha writing)!
