Writing an Assignment in a Funny Way - the Key Tips for Students

by Randhir Pandey Team Lead - Marketing

There is a saying that persists and it stands so true! People who are funny and make others laugh are rare to find because as it is known there is a very thin line between being funny and being foolish. At the same time, it is an art that can’t be developed overnight. Students who are in school and college are often told to experiment with their writing skills and write essays on topics that can help them bring out the humour and funny nature. 

Having said that, it is also true that just like in the case of stand up comedians, writing a funny essay which tickles your funny bone and at the same time conveys a meaningful message is not a task that can be achieved easily. Those students who finish their high school will no longer need to write essays, but behold this is news which is incorrect. Most colleges and universities till quite some time tell their students to write numerous essays and academic papers. 

Most people reading this may wonder as to what writing an assignment in a funny way means? Essays that can bear a few references of funny incidents can also be termed as creative essays, which can give that chance to students to be expressive and funny at the same time. Creative essays don’t have any such guidelines to which they need to stick and this often means that students have the creative liberty to write with bouts of humour, sarcasm and taking examples from real-life everyday scenarios as well. 

Keep in mind that there are several tips that you need to keep in mind while writing a creative essay that is engrossing enough. 

Reading is your fuel: the more you read the more you perfect your language and this, in turn, reflects in how well you can write about any topic in the most carefree yet subtle way. Students who spend time reading a lot of open windows to a world of creativity that fuels their passion to write and that is one ingredient that every creative essay writer needs to have. 

How would you write it better: there may be times that you may come across some article which you feel lacked punch and wit. Take time off and practise writing the same article the way you would like it to bring out the humour and wittiness. Like they say practice makes humour more effective. 

Build up a story: there is this game most students play where there is an entire group. The game starts with one person stating a sentence and one by one the rest of the team needs to build on the story by giving sentences. This is one way to explore how funny you can get even when the previous statements given are scary or dry. Sooner or later the same thing will be evident in your writing as well. 

Practice till you perfect it: humour and wittiness is an art which takes time to hone, but once you have it in you, there is no taking it back. Read a lot, listen to a lot of podcasts and then figure out how you can imitate the same verbal skills in the written forms. 

These are the key tips that you need to focus on when writing an essay in a manner. Keep those tickle buds ready to explode as you venture on the path of funny essay writing.
