Allergic to the letter ‘e’ challenge

I try not to post twice in one day, at least not on the same site. I don’t always succeed, hence the second post in a matter of hours! But I was challenged by a blogging friend, Solveig, and the challenge has a time limit. If I don’t comply with the rules, I’m relegated to the Page of Lame, and we can’t have that!

The challenge, as the title of the post suggests, is ‘Allergic to the letter ‘e’. Before I get to the rules, I’d like to challenge Callum, Hannah, Colleen, Charles and Natacha.

Here are the Rules:

1) Write a whole paragraph ( a paragraph sounds easy right?) without any word containing the letter “e” (still easy?)

2) By reading this you are already signed up.

3) Challenge at least five bloggers to do the challenge. They must do it within 24 hours or it is considered as failure.

4) If you fail or pass, suffer in the Page of Lame.

5) If you win, wallow in the Page of Fame.

I’m just going to get straight to it. Here is my paragraph:

Maddison is a witch. Not an ordinary witch; a fact which stirs curiosity in mortals and immortals both. Many of Maddison’s gifts, gifts from immortals who don’t normally trust individuals not of similar rank, allow Maddison to command and control unusual skills in a fight. Maddison hunts for a living. Finding dark, ugly shadows of our world, who kill for sport.

I’ll take my ‘e’ back now!

Thanks for stopping by.




That was fabulous! I only hope I can do as well! 💗😁

Nice job. I’ll see what I can do. At the ‘putting kid to bed’ stage of the night, so time might be an issue here.

    Thank you. I found it a revealing exercise. You won’t believe the number of ‘e’s’ I found in there the first few times I looked back over it. They are pesky little things! I was convinced I’d missed one 😀

Hope you don’t mind if I try.

Blogging has a wondrous ability to bring out amazing, artistic sparks in individuals that touch all of us humans who hold hands at a virtual window to a shiny world of unknown and glorious possibility.

I do like my “e” also. This was a challenge for sure, but fun.

I don’t hope to enter any contests, but did write a paragraph and here it is, No e’s:
Follow Tarry to Brackstolm, with two guards looking out for lads of its magical tabby guild. Whom cats with longish bright wisps of fur that follow, and moaning to toads, casting spells of sing song sort as passing by.
Tarry knows of it, but isn’t in it. Though his book in pack has last scraps of chants of CantCantonia Monks with mouths in an always O. And he must find Brackstolm’s Tabby King and wish for wonderous works to follow.

It’s a funny challenge, and you did a great job!

Well this should certainly be interesting! 🙂 Thanks for tagging me 🙂

That was great! You definitely did a fine job for this challenge. Thanks for playing 😀

Great job! That’s not an easy thing to do, either!

I’d never be able to do that!! Great job 🙂
