WRITING CONTEST #16

DEADLINE: October 15th

WRITING CONTEST: Every Monday a new, interesting vocabulary word will be posted here, as well as a sentence using that word.

Your job is to create and post a new, better sentence in the comment box, using the same word. Yes, you may change the form of the word. Yes, I’ll be the judge. Yes, I am a subjective judge  ( I like clever or funny, I hate bigotry).

The winning sentence will be announced here the following Monday.

THIS WEEK’S WORD:    ~ grit ~

SENTENCE TO BEAT:  The grit in my eye fortuitously blocked the view of the nuclear moon.

    The disgusted Waffle House diner snorted, “If I never see another grit it will be too soon!”

    Disclaimer: I love the Waffle House and grits, particullarly Albers.

    You could hear through the pain in his voice, spitting with grit, hitting your senses with reality.
