Fun with alliteration

https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/2015/07/02/my-weekly-writing-challenge

I missed Esther Newton’s Weekly Writing Challenge last week, because I couldn’t access the internet. This was disappointing, as it was for a story of up to fifteen words and each word had to start with the same letter.

I enjoyed this game a bit too much! Once I started I couldn’t stop. This is what I came up with:

S.

Silent she sits, staring sleepily, seemingly serene, slowly slipping, sliding southwards; seepiing shocking scarlet splashes.

G

Gargantuan George gorged greedily;
Grub guzzled, grabbed guts.
George Gone!
Guests goggled.
Grasping girlfriend giggled.
Great!

W

“What wonders we will weave with weaponed waifs!”
“Why wish war? Wanton wastage!”
“Why wait?”

E

Excited, Eric entertains.
Eva endures endless ennui. Ennerved, eventually escapes entrenchment; exits eastwards.
Eric erupts.

L

Lonesome little Lucy lugs luggage, leaves London.
Leudly, Lawrence lisps lilting lullabies.
Lucy listens, lost.

F

Fortuitous fame
flowering
feeding flames
fizzing
flowing fast
faltering
falling
fame fades
fortune fails
finishes
