March’s writing challenge!
Now I Know My ABCs
Write a story in which you begin each sentence with a different letter of the alphabet, beginning with A and ending with Z. How far can you get without stopping?
We spend a lot of time discussing where we’d like to be in a year, five years, ten years, et cetera; rarely do we think about where we would not like to end up. Think about the events you’d like to avoid. Discover the moments you don’t want to realize. Vocalize the habits you hope you don’t find routine. Explore the professions you don’t aspire to have.
When children are learning to be readers and writers in primary grades, they don’t worry about spelling as much as content. They write the sounds they hear based on the knowledge they have of letters. As adults, many of us stress about spelling things correctly. For this exercise, don’t worry about your spelling… Write quickly and worry only about getting your thoughts and content on the page.
