A fifth of music

The rules:
1.Write a whole paragraph (a paragraph sounds easy right?)
2.Without any word containing the letter “e” (still easy for ya?)
3.By reading this you are already signed up.
4.Challenge at least five bloggers to do the challenge.


Music is soul food. If I could ask for anything, that costs just about nothing, and still can flow out of a human, who wants nothing but a day full from sad thoughts, I would ask for music. Music is worship and adoration. Music is kind. Music holds sway. Music plays on. A fifth holds its own. But, now it is not part of a plan. Just as a paragraph can miss a fifth. So too, my days can miss music.

I nominate Lupey Loops, Cynalune, Wendy of the Rock, North of 49, and Happy Radical and anyone else who wants to play.

Even if you don't want to post your paragraph to your blog - give it a try - it is an interesting assignment.

Thanks to Edwina's Episodes for egging me on. You can check out her paragraph here.

  2. I will try...but I'm not sure I'm fluent enough to do it in English. Over here there is an author who wrote a whole book without e : la Disparition. Then he did a sequel with only words countaining the letter e : les Revenentes. Apparently a phrase where a letter is avoided in purpose is un lipogramme in French and Google suggests it's the same word in English.
