E is for...

Perspiration trickled...Robyn paced the floor. 

Will they go for today's E word being associated with writing? It was the ONLY E word you could think of, you dumb dumb, you.

Then she decided to spring it on them. Effect/affect

Wait a minute. I'm not teaching a class here. I'm writing a blog post.

Eensy! And yes, my writerly pals, I can turn that into a writing word. We DO write eensy sentences when we write picture books. *whew* She hoped they wouldn't notice her nose twitch. It always twitched when she was worried. Would they fall for it?? Only time would tell.

And when we write MG novels, we write less eensy sentences.

*pat, pat* That's the sound of this writer patting herself on the back.

Another day, another letter. See Lee, I KNEW this challenge was for me.

  1. Eensy works for me! I need to write more eensy poems or anything these days. Even "eensy" writing is getting something down. I know what you're thinking...and I'm working on it starting today. Remember Rocky who needed Mick to push him? You're my lovely Mick, my friend!

  9. Love! Eensy sentences are definitely a challenge for me, though. I am more on the "less eensy" side :)
