First of all: the writeathon is OPEN! The topic is foolishness.
For centuries, April Fool's Day has been a celebration of pranks, mischief, and humor. While pranks and mockery are sometimes used to bully the weak into submission, they have also been used to cut down tyrants, taking the great and terrible into the small and pathetic. Even gods can be rendered human through the power of comedy.
And then you have the divine fool, symbolized by the court jester, where apparent foolishness conceals deep wisdom. "Out of the mouths of babes," as they say.
What part of foolishness fascinates YOU? The benevolent type, the malicious kind, sheer absurdity? Whatever you prefer, that is our theme for today!
This writeathon will be taking prompts until Saturday, April 6th! Make sure you get your prompt in to me in time, so I can write you stuff!
Second of all, I will be at SPACE (Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) at Columbus, OH on April 14th-15th! If you're in the area and are interested in our comics, come check us out! I will be debuting Cracks of Sunshine, vol. 2!
