In this activity, the writer must write a 6 sentence paragraph without repeating *any* word twice. The paragraph should make "sense" as a complete paragraph and not be just a series of sentences.

Have fun!

Do you like zebras? Now, speak up! Truly? I enjoy them myself. They are so easy to care for, and members of Equus rock. Endless fun-filled hours await with yourself plus a new friend.

*that was the stupidest most terrible thing I have ever written but it was fun anyway. Thanks!*

Poland is an enjoyable place. It be a country in Europe. Cold temperatures are found there. The thermometers show low readings. They are made of glass and have mercury inside them. I enjoy liquid metals.

Incredibly, this paragraph has no repeated words. How great is that? Six sentences with zero repeats. Well, maybe you don't think so. But I do. Peace out.

(I'm saying 'don't' is a word, and therefore I have not repeated 'do', right? Haha)

The bigger the issue, the smaller you write. Remember that. You don’t write about the horrors of war. No. You write about a kid’s burnt socks lying on the road. You pick the smallest manageable part of the big thing, and you work off the resonance.
