Allergic to E Challenge

So, this wonderful (former) friend of mine, Kate, decided to hit me up with a challenge. While this is perfect, because I had nothing planned for today, it also squeezed at my brain. The Allergic to E challenge pits a writer to construct a paragraph (4 to 6 sentences) without using the letter “E”. Sounds easy? Not for this cat. I gave it my best shot at making sense, you can read it below.

Now, the fun part… passing the torture onward.

Hit List:

THE Shannon

Zach Chop

Jackie S.


Lizzy from across the pond

My Attempt:

Alas, as I was diving into a thought, I lost my way. All along, my mind had a plan to finish a whimsical parody of words and actions. A wind winds its way up past my body and with it, my thoughts stop. A storm is coming and with it, rain. Rains that will wash away clouds in my imagination and allow my originality to dock again, thankfully, as if it was a long trip’s arrival back in town.

If anyone else feels like giving the challenge a go (or my nominees don’t feel like doing a full blog post), feel free to try posting your comments without using the letter E! Good luck!

  1. Jonas,
    You sly cat you. How you ask us to show our author limitations to you (and to a bookworm world.) Though I confront this as a fight with words—darling words—I must nod to you. Your paragraph is gnarly…no…outstanding…no…I cannot find a word without…you know… (And I can’t think of my last occasion I said gnarly.) Damn you. ❤
