All you know is up.
But you also know down,
Down so low that you want to climb out.
Climb until you find light, wind, rain…
I think you will find tomorrow.
Look for laughing.
Laugh for crying.
In your spot,
Or climb and fight.
But don’t fall down again.
– Old, New or True.
Today, for 15 minutes, try to write without using the letter ‘e’. It isn’t easy. I suspect you may have been taking the letter ‘e’ for granted, leaving more exciting vocabulary, or more creative phrases to become all cobwebby in the attic-like recesses of your brain. Time to let them out! I warn you though, ‘e’ can be a sneaky, tricksy, relentless little devil. Quite often I reread my passages and find a little stowaway. How did you get there little fella?
This is one of my favourite writing games. I cannot take credit for having come up with it. I have been asked to do it in more than one writing course/workshop. The finished product is always surprising. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself.
If this is your first visit to my scribble challenge, you can read more about them here. If you happen to post any of your scribbles, be sure to let me know.
