Fun Fact Friday – Jennifer Cruise isn’t Funny?

If you asked yourself who you were, what adjectives would you use?  Witty?  Caring? Interesting?  What is your writing like – if you write anyway.  Well author Jennifer Cruise, whom I find to have some great one-liners wouldn’t describe herself as funny.

I would not describe myself as a funny writer, nor would I describe my books as comedies. I may be the only person in the world who thinks I don’t write comedy, but that’s okay because when it comes to defining me, I’m the only one who counts. I’ll take “sharp,” I’ll take “true,” I’ll take “obsessed with community,” but I will not take “comic.” That’s not me.  Jennifer Crusie

How we see ourselves usually doesn’t line up with how others view us.  Is it crazy that a Romance writer who writes some comedy romance wouldn’t see herself as funny?

    I remember when I was teaching, my students thought I was hysterical. I didn’t think I was funny at all. It’s amazing how our own perceptions of ourself can differ so much from the way others view us.

      That’s funny that you had no idea. At least your weren’t the teacher walking around thinking you were a stand-up comedian just to find out that no one else agreed 🙂
