Weekend Assignment: Variety is the Spice of Writing

Welcome to another weekend writing prompt. I’m glad to see you.

This weekend’s challenge is to add variety to your sentences. The idea is simple — write a cohesive eight-sentence paragraph about the topic of your choice. Here’s the catch: each sentence must begin with a different part of speech. For those of you word nerds who can’t rattle them off at the drop of a hat, I’ve made a list:

Noun
Pronoun
Verb
Adverb
Adjective
Preposition
Conjunction
Interjection

You can use the parts of speech in any order you like, as long as each sentence begins with a different one and all eight are used.

The Show and Tell Challenge

Step right up and take the B&B Show and Tell Challenge! Here’s how: simply write your response to this assignment, post it on your blog, then come back and leave a link to your post in the comments. It’s that simple!
