No ‘E’ Challenge Share Day

aprilchallenge

Ready to share your paragraphs from the challenge? It was a tough one this round.

Here’s a reminder of the challenge: No ‘E’ Challenge

If you’re just joining us, it’s not too late to jump in and have a go!

Be sure to check closely for those pesky Es. I had a few sneak into mine and I had to revise!

I chose the frog picture for my prompt:

A tiny frog sits on my hand. “Croaaaak!” it says. It hops off my hand and into a patch of grass, looking for a tasty snack of fruit fly fairy floss or mosquito muffins. It spots its lunch: a tasty bug with black and brown spots. Hop. Hop. Stop. Hop. Hop. Caught! My child’s hand wraps around its slimy body. A lucky black and brown bug is not a tasty snack this morning. A tiny frog is still hungry. “Don’t worry, froggy,” says my child. “I’ll find you a yummy biscuit from Mum’s pantry.”

Please feel free to share your paragraphs in the comments below. If you don’t want to share, tell us about how you found the challenge. Was it challenging writing a paragraph with no Es?

The No ‘E’ Challenge

Ready for another challenge? This challenge is to get you thinking about word choice and not relying on words you are used to using. It’s about stepping outside your comfort zone and finding new words to enhance your writing.

Here are the rules:

  1. Write a paragraph (or two) based on one of the word prompts or the picture prompt below.
  2. You may not use the letter ‘e’ in any word in your paragraph.
  3. If you are comfortable sharing, come back in 2 weeks and share in the comments of the ‘share day’ post (if you subscribe to this blog–it’s free!–you will know as soon as the post goes live).

Here are the word prompts:

 

Beach

 

School

 

Spring

 

And here is the picture prompt:
