Puns: Love ’em or Leave ’em Out!

Puns can add to a story or detract from a scene. It’s an author’s call to love ’em or leave ’em out. Personally, I’ve never met a pun I didn’t like, but not all readers appreciate the subtle humor. Does it move the story forward or serve a purpose such as character development or comic relief? If not, it could end up a distraction. So enjoy the wordplay if only just for the pun of it.

But her aim is starting to improve!
