Dominique Liongson wrote The P.W.F.B.D. book. She felt inspired to write it as her 2017 New Year’s resolution: 1 riddle a day for 365 days. With the help of her mentor, they team-worked together to bring this book to life, that's born on 2018. For more, click the CHECK OUT P.W.F.B.D button, or scroll further down.
1) What is P.W.F.B.D. about?
This is about a collection of riddle puns that may provide ways for brighter days. (To end the surprise factor, click the CHECK OUT P.W.F.B.D. button above this interview.)
2) When did you start and finish writing this joke book?
I started from 1 January to 31 December 2017 within 365 days.
3) Who are your jokes for?
My jokes were for the Generation X. But recently I received news that children as young as 10 years old appreciate the play of words written in the book. A little lady among the children said that the author is a genius.
4) Why is this joke book unique?
It is unique because it is a joke book built by writing one riddle pun a day for 365 days, and this commitment was based on following a new year's resolution of 2017.
5) Why did you accept to write a pun a day for 365 days?
I accepted to write this because I wanted a challenge. In the past, the jokes I told were borrowed from different sources. I felt it was about time to rely on my creative mind to write riddle puns.
6) Did you build your joke book around a genre?
Yes I did.
7) How would you classify the genre of your puns?
I would classify these puns as clean wit and humor.
8) Are the puns retold or originals?
The puns are original play of words.
9) What can you say if someone wrote a joke that is similar to yours?
I can say that someone and I must have channeled a similar level of inspiration. It would spoil my fun if I researched for processed jokes and claim them as my own.
10) Where do you get your ideas for your puns?
I take ideas from playing with words. It can be from playing with what it sounds like, or what other meanings one particular word has.
11) Who or what are your inspirations?
There are inspirations such as the following (but not limited to) funny authors (e.g. Andrew Matthews), funny speakers (e.g. Leo Buscaglia), and funny newspaper cartoons (e.g. The Far Side).
12) What may we benefit from your book?
We may benefit by eye-rolling, smiling, and crack up laughing. It's a happy, joyful, and fun book.
13) Where can we buy your book?
We may buy the book from Ocean Reeve Publishing. For signed copies, you may buy from the author (that's me). Please send your details to me at the CONTACT Page. I will get back to you to discuss the author's price and other payment details.
14) What is the next step for you?
My next step is an adventure is to write a little a day to create a beautiful compilation. I have a stash of learning experiences that will help me improve this next project.
