Hello Dawn,
I have to say no, though, sometimes I might open a page of one of my books and read a line and catch myself smiling. This only happens a long time after the book is complete, when it has seeped from my system. Many lines I can't remember writing. The act of writing is, for me, being induced into a trance...on a good day. When I'm writing its how I see the world so maybe that's why I tend not to laugh in the moment.
Thanks for you question.

“Yes, Cabbage: prison diplomacy. It’s called offering the newcomer a very warm welcome. You can tell Mares that I made lots of friends at two in the morning on the first night and continued making friends in the back of the laundry room and if I didn’t make friends there they would shove me into an industrial tumble-dryer and spin me around a few times until I was dizzy enough to make lots of friends at the same time.”
