Take a break from the turkey.....and do the QWERTY keyboard challenge

Ah ha - you were expecting a Thanksgiving blog - after all, tomorrow's the big day.  I took a little break from brining the turkey and making the cornbread for my dressing tomorrow and turned on my computer.  I started reading the blogs that I enjoy so much - who needs to read a book when there's so many real-life stories being told!  I ran across a challenge on my friend Jane's blog.

Do you have a QWERTY keyboard?  If you look at the keys on your keyboard, the first six letters you see are Q-W-E-R-T-Y.  

Jane took on a challenge today to write a story using all of the letters on the keyboard in sequence.  It is not an easy challenge!  Your story should contain twenty-six words - and remember, it must make sense.  That's the hard part.  Here's my story:

Quietly, William Edward rode the yellow unicorn into our pasture.  A squirrel darted forward.  “Gads! He just kicked Lorna”, Zelda  x-asperatedly cried. “Vicious!  Big naughty mare!”

As you can see, I took a little "writer's liberty" with the X.   Give it a try.  Even if you don't blog, it will be fun to see what you can do.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I'll be enjoying tomorrow with my family and hope you do the same.


  1. I never heard of this. Nor has the whoa-man. I shall give it a try, later.

  2. That is so funny...How very clever and witty you are.

    Happy Thanksgiving

  3. Very clever. I haven't seen that one before. Wishing you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving Day with your family.

  4. Glad you did this - very funny Glenda ... love the darting squirrel!


I love to hear your comments!
