Daily Prompt – Twenty Five

Daily Prompt

There are 26 letters in the English language, and we need every single one of them. Want proof? Choose a letter and write a blog post without using it. (Feeling really brave? Make it a vowel!)

Leaving one of the twenty-six letters of the alphabet out of a post doesn’t sound so hard. But when you really think about it, which could you excuse? With so many to choose you would expect one or two to be easily excluded. But is this a truthful thought?

I am writing now and thinking of a letter I will not use. Will I be successful? It is a mystery even to me at this point. You see the more you write the more letters you consume. It may not seem so hard, but in fact it is.

I am a long time writer and try very hard to stretch my vocabulary by adding new words. if you have spent any time with a thesaurus you understand their are many words that mean the same thing you can use to broaden your vocabulary reach. This being true it means you can exclude a letter or word every now and then.

Being conscious of the letter  intend to excuse I am able to avoid any words with that letter. Have you figured out which letter it is yet? To the best of my knowledge without careful proofreading I have been able to avoid using two letters of the alphabet. To engage conversation I intend to not enumerate them so you may as you read my post. Think of it as a bonus post with a puzzle included. I look forward to your response.

  3. Z was my first thought but then saw puzzle. I saw no J and that is one I use all the time by using the word just. I though G, but saw that right away. Q was one I looked for immediately. I enjoyed the challenge.
