I added one of my parodies Larry Cropper and the Ordinary Stone in the last step .
Step 1: Decision
A parody suits only those books that are famous or really deserve to be parodied. I specefically chose Harry Potter. You can chose any there are numerous others as well.
Step 2: Story
So you read the book, now you know what happens, who dies ,who lives.
NEXT STEP - Parody It.
Step 3: Characters
You can name the characters anything,its your story, but if you make them comical aswell you get the laughs you need.
Say for instance
Harry Potter- Larry Cropper
Also if you parody the characters character it give a nice touch.
Step 4: Add a Comic Element
Make the story funny. Add funny instances like a meek Voldemort who is scared of his shadow or a Legolas whose arrows dont want to come out or a Darth Vader who is into fashion and wears a pink helmet.
You just have to let your imagination free nad what you will get will even astound YOU.
Step 5: Expand Upon the Base
simple step just make your story bigger.
I added part of my earliest parody to give you an example. (I was a horrible writer an year ago)
