That said I love to read books where the author has sprinkled in funny incidents. I find that not all books have this, only a few can truly make me laugh in the midst of a mystery or a drama.
I want to be like them! I want to add in that comedic flare occasionally. It's not fair that I'm not as funny.
Wait, I can come back and add in the snappy comebacks and goofy incidents. I'm a writer I can do that sort of thing in my edits.
So, for my current WIP that's exactly what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to sprinkle in scenes that are a little more fun than would otherwise be. Why? I think it fits in this story. I think readers will enjoy it. And, most of all, I'm enjoying the comedic outbursts myself. I think my main character can handle these situations well. At least I hope she can.
Of course, we'll have to see if my critique group thinks it works or not, but I think it does.
