E is for the LETTER E

letter e

E is the most common letter in the English language.

A Void, translated from the original French La Disparition (The Disappearance), is a 300-page novel written in 1969 by Georges Perec without using the letter e (except for the writer’s name).

Could you write 100 word description of what’s on your desk right at this moment without the letter E? It’s not easy….which is why I often set it as a class writing exercise. I’m mean that way.

    Go for it!
    Forces you to use words you wouldn’t normally and work out new sentence constructions, especially when you realise even THE is banned…but a whole novel . The mind boggles!!

    Love your one word mosaic messages…beautifully crafted and you made me contemplate the problems of letters with holes
