Weekly Inspiration


This is an exercise that was set by my English teacher (Miss Gray) all the way back in year 8, and I think it can be useful (and fun) for writers to work with the restrictions and use them creatively.

Write an alphabet story. The first letter of the first word of every sentence must be in alphabetical order, ie: Alan was walking in the woods. Bears sneaked up behind him. “Crumpets,” shouted the leader of the bears.

You don’t have to begin with “A,” but you must include every letter of the alphabet, going to “A” after “Z,” ie. WXYZABCDE etc.
