Here’s a fun little writing challenge I recently took. This is something I’m sure many writers have done, yet I had not. You need to write a story using the alphabet. The alphabet must be in order, the first letter of each sentence, not using names, and each line being only one sentence.
This is what I came up with.
A WALK DOWN THE ISLE
Although I was nervous, I still proceeded down the isle.
Beyond the first row, Butch was waiting for me, all dressed up in a snazzy suit and tie.
Can this really be happening?
Did I doze off and into a dream?
Everyone loves, Butch Hamilton.
Frankly, I didn’t know what to think of him at first.
Guys like him didn’t like girls like me.
He was tall, and dark and handsome.
I know, the typical hunk, right.
January was the month we met.
Kind as he was, I never thought he would look at me the way I looked at him.
Loveable Butch is what most called him.
My mom even liked him, which is saying a lot because she didn’t like most men I dated.
Not that I dated much.
Oh no, I was never that lucky.
Plenty of times I had wanted too, though.
Question was, would my mom approve?
Right now as I made my way down the isle I had to wonder how I, Casey Richards, got so lucky.
Sounds from behind me had me wanting to turn but I knew I shouldn’t.
The others around me looked back briefly but I still kept my eyes forward.
Under any other circumstances, I would have turned to see what they were seeing.
Veering to the right a bit, I felt a dizziness sweep over me.
What would I do if I passed out, now?
X-rays may be needed if I hit my head, and that would not be a good thing.
Yes, everyone was back on track, there attention was where it should be.
Zip down the rest of the isle, and I’d soon be Mrs. Butch Hamilton.
