Write a 100-word story without using the letter "e" in any words

Here’s my take:

Put it out. His first thought was strong though too slow. His plan was to grill out and display a grand swath of fish on croissants with fruit parfait to finish. Now just an abrupt gush on a burning portion. Just put it out and hand Jan a fragrant small wick. It couldn’t hurt anything. It wouldn’t stop what was going to occur. A shack would still burn down. Jan would still abandon him. Having Jan hold a tiny bit of his guilt, a touch of his stupidity was not a solution. It was all that David could finally do.

    Kugel, absolutely give it a try if you have a chance. Once I got my first few lines, I found that the rest flowed out.

  3. Hey!
    This is challenging, I’ll have to think on it a bit and get back to you 🙂 I just started a flash fiction blog, which is exactly about writing complex, rich with an itty bitty word count. I would love to hear what you think about it!

    Hi Erica,

    I checked out your blog and see this is right in your writing arena! I know you’ll come up with something great. 🙂 Prompts like this help me get my mind thinking away from normal writing paths.

  5. Hi Barbara!
    This took me awhile 🙂 it was quite a challenge! What do you think? I will also post this on my blog.

    Toll way approaching. Ship captain Zindra gulps, docks on a platform, turns off motor, and waits. Sudor coats Zindra’s mohogany hair, a pout turns into a scowl, a lachryma forms and rolls down. With a numb and void look, Zindra scans ship by logging in an account. It’s dry, lacking funds. Captain initially sobs uncontrollably, at that instant sang-froidly stands up. At ship’s aft, Zindra coolly unhooks a limp limb, placing it in a frosty bin, pod shuts with toll way approval. Captain Missing Limb sits down, sighs, and recalls final goal to accomplish as incoming asteroids trigger warning signal.

  6. Sorry Barbara a few e’s escaped me, here is the final version 🙂

Captain Missing Limb sits down thinking about final goal to accomplish as a cosmic ray attack sounds warning.

      Erica, great! I’m giggling because for my first try, I had about 4 words with “e” sitting there highlighted and it took me a moment to let them go. Made the mind think in a different way, which is always good.
