If this was an actual club, I would be conniving to obtain membership. Perhaps submitting pictures of my cats or making pathetic attempts at humor. Lucky for me, you can simply subscribe to enjoy the ironic riches of their site.

From the passing swipe of having your wayward main character read Paradise Lost, to the more substantial ironic twist of having your fairytale story end on a not-so-happily-ever-after note, irony can be a useful device in ficiton. Do you ever use irony in your stories? And do you wield it intentionally, or does irony sneak up on you?
Next week is Spring Break and I’m hoping the weather will stay non-ironic. Ink Spells will be on hiatus until the kids return to school. There will probably be laser tag, taxes, and if I’m lucky, a little time for writing. Mostly I’ll be trying to keep up with three winter-stir-crazy boys.
Ink Spells will resume on the 29th!
