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)

Writing activities are cool! This is a short sentence. And yes, I love reviving old YWS threads. How’d you guess? =P Hmm, do emoticons count? Perhaps not, so here's one last string of words.

It had been six years since dinosaurs returned to Earth. Dust clouded the atmosphere. In some parts of Asia, lava flowed freely again. A scientist, Dr. Lydia Chen, woke up with a pterodactyl laying eggs atop her house. Ridiculous but scary. After all, animal maternal instincts were fierce.

(Hope I got this right!)

A voice scattered through the forest in melancholy tone. Branches whipped away as if snapped and twisted. Storm clouds bundled far overhead, long staffs of lightning flaring between trees. Mice crept quietly into burrows, old owls watching intently. Suddenly, torrents of rain scratched leaves, falling clumps. So we watched from my bedroom, calling.

The chicken, Herschel, spun to show enthusiasm. Greeting morning-sun, "hello sky-star over-easy egg upon clouded day!" His feathers ruffled warm on wings stretched out, preparing a shriek. "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" he screamed for man and beast. Afterall, waking is best done with shrill ringing ears. Bird's job commenced, feathered eyelids drooped, beak murmuring, "goodnight sweet world, I rest now til mid-day's light."

there is no season as achingly temporary as now
but i have promised to return
