ABC'S OF CARTOONING - GAG WRITING


SOME CARTOONISTS CAN'T DRAW FAST ENOUGH TO USE UP THE IDEAS IN  THEIR HEADS. (BIG HEADS) THE REST OF US RUN OUT OF IDEAS NOW AND THEN.  I KNOW IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE BUT IT'S TRUE. IF YOU ARE PART OF THE  "REST OF US" GROUP TRY THE GAG WRITING TABLE. PICK OUT A SUBJECT,  LOCATION, PROP AND ACTION AND LET YOUR IMAGINATION GO TO WORK. GAG WRITING TABLE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD WORDS TO THE GAG TABLE  SEND YOUR WORDS (NICE WORDS I HOPE) TO  A GRATEFUL EDITOR - Thatjoeguy@aol.com
