Erika Kind, a particularly lovely friend of this blog, has challenged me to something called a Veracity Challenge. The rules are pretty straight-forward:
- Write a paragraph without using a single adjective.
- Keep the link of the original Veracity Challenge in your post (so that the creator of the challenge may receive a pingback)
- Anyone can join the challenge, you don’t have to be nominated!
- Still, you can nominate 6 Bloggers for this challenge
As my descriptions tend to be a bit on the dry side, this turned out to be a fairly easy challenge! 😀
It’s an alternative telling of the opening paragraph of my Hand of God short story:
“The bartender rubbed a glass with a towel, not quite sure which one was cleaning the other. The bar might be little more than a drinking hole, but it was the closest one to the Academy. As such, it was busy every evening, as soon as the cadets were allowed to leave the premises. He stole a glance at his watch; soon the bar would fill with uniforms.”
Anyone wishing to join in the fun, consider yourself challenged! Oh wait, that didn’t sound quite right…
