Does anyone have a problem with finding that "sweet spot" of writing humor? I'm not deluded enough to think I could write comedy gold on the first go, but I'd love to hear what other people do to develop and refine their ideas in to something good. The reason why I ask is because the story I'm writing involves an MC who I want to have as a source of comic relief. He is a complete smartass who tends to shoot off his mouth before fully thinking through his actions, and he's going to get his friends in to some really awkward/difficult situations as a result. I've been kind of annoyed, because every time I write something from his POV, I'll re-read it and feel like the humor in the situation seems forced. Currently I'm just keeping a list of funny little quips that pop in to my head randomly, but I'm coming up empty on how to actually USE them. Suggestions?
