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.


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.
