Allergic to ‘E’ challenge

So I was challenged by the lovely *ahem* Every Word You Say to undertake writing an entire paragraph without using the letter E once. (By the way, I haven’t started yet, just in case you were thinking I really haven’t understood the point of this!! 🙂 )


I shall begin now. Holy macaroni, how tough. A quick brainstorm and what joy, amazingly I can still wax lyrical about pink, unicorns, a fabulous sparkly fairy, fun things such as knights, dragons, roaring dinosaurs, glowing light from bright moons shining in a dark night sky.

Also, a fun fact about your author, four birthdays flown past from a point that, big with baby bump, I took against an innocuous thing, a tomato, and still to this day, I can’t stand to munch that fruit.

So thanks to you, blogging buddy, for passing on this writing hardship, so tough, traumatic I would go so far to say. Now though, I must go, for a mosquito is trying to hunt my tasty blood.

Boom! 😀


Wow, so I am more than a little proud of myself now. As Mr Pear Bear said; nailed it! High praise indeed!

Never one to hog all the fun, I nominate these bloggers to do the same! Let’s get those synapses firing!! 😀

  • Link to the person who nominated you and thank them. 
  • Write a paragraph without using the letter ‘E’.
  • Nominate 5 other bloggers.
  1. Inte fan gor det det (I am so interested to see if this is easier or harder in another language!)
  2. Claire at Art and Soul
  3. Sophie Speaks Up
  4. Occupation (m)other
  5. Silence Killed the Dinosaurs

And that’s me done! Phew, goodbye for now! 😀

    I’m loath to click like on this one! It’s going to take some work. Very impressed with your paragraph!!!

      Haha it is actually not that bad, I just wrote down all the things I could think of without an e in & jiggled them into a paragraph! Glad you like it. 🙂

    OMG that’s so difficult to do. Good job!

    • July 23, 2015 / 9:47 pm

      Thank you! It is really tricky, finding ‘e-less’ words isn’t too hard but juggling them into sentences that aren’t just a nonsensical jumble of crazy is another matter! 😀

    Haha, thanks for the nomination … I think. You did an excellent job with that. I’m definitely going to give this a shot because it looks fun in a convoluted sort of way, but I may not blog the results.

      Ok that is fine, on the condition that you share it with me somehow! I promise to keep it private. 🙂 It was so so fun in a weird way. I love words!

        I did it! (I don’t mind sharing it here. It’s just that I’m just not sure I could get a whole blog post out of it. As you will see, my paragraph doesn’t really relate to anything I’m saying here. I guess it could be part of a fictional book, but it wouldn’t slot neatly into a blog post like yours did.) It was daunting, but when I got started it wasn’t too bad. And it was fun!

        “I walk up a narrow, twisting mountain path. Thick cloud pools and swirls all around, soupy, and I am lost in fog. It is damp against my skin, as though cold, clammy hands touch my body. If my foot slips on the slick rock I will fall.”

        And I just realised that I could have started with “it was a dark and stormy night…” and tried to tell a campfire horror story. But oh well.
