One of my challenge entries actually contains NO "the's". I challenged myself by searching out the word and not using it. (Ok, really, I was looking for a way to cut words - I also eliminated every "that") I wish I could remember which one it was. I guess I'll have to read them all again and find it as "anti-homework" for the next lesson. hee hee.
My homework: I think this one qualifies as a "slice of life"?
"I Lay Me Down in Peace, and Sleep"
The "story" came to me, believe it or not, as I was laying down to sleep for the night, wondering what in the world I could write for "Calm", and trying to calm my brain down enough to sleep. Not very deep, huh? I was stunned when it won 1st in Advanced and an EC!! It was one of the easiest entries I've ever written.
