I am giving a link to a challenge entry before the lesson. The reason is because this entry needed two separate settings that had to tell a lot about the people, the environment and the urgent need without taking up a lot of words to get that accomplished.

I think you'll find, without a doubt, Your clothes look tacky inside-out. That's just a teaser. Now I'll get serious. At limericks my talent is fine... I write them each night as I dine. But it seems rather poor That right after line four It never fails that I get too many words in the last line.

I still have the untapped idea for my NaNo fiasco. Not one word done... how embarrassing. But, with the same desire and MULTIPLIED effort, I am determined to do this one because the idea for the book is worth doing. It's a period story set in the Dark Ages. I'm hoping kids will put down Harry Potter...

Goody, goody... I get to repeat the test and give all new answers. 1. You might choose to repeat one word, with nothing between them: “Frogs, frogs, frogs…” the teacher babbled from the back of the meeting room. “Why do the students all croak at me like frogs?” There was a frightening glaze in his e...
