My good friend Kate M Colby has nominated me for the Allergic to E writing challenge!
Taking from her example I will use standard elementary school paragraph requirements- approximately five sentences, without using the letter E.
The biggest challenge I found was not using the word ‘The’. In fact, I wrote a whole paragraph, dusted my hands off content I hadn’t used the letter E at all, did a quick once over with the find function and realized I had used ‘the’ no more than seven times. Funny how the eye can be trained to gloss over those pesky articles.
I think I did a fine job of it. I really enjoyed the challenge and encourage you to give it a go!
Opal stalks, low, stomach scraping along hard wood, moving forward without sound. A toy twirls and zips. Pupils track it cautiously, tail twitching anxiously. It loops low, wings dipping. Claws and fur burst into action. Opal’s vicious pink mouth clamps around bright artificial fur. Paws catch and clutch. It jumps to fly away. Claws dig into fabric. Incisors snap shut around faux throats. It lays still. Victory!
