Alphabet Jenga

“Writers spend three years rearranging 26 letters of the alphabet. It’s enough to make you lose your mind day by day.” ~ Richard Price

wooden alphabet blocks

Seems so simple, really. Just combine a few squiggly marks together to make a word, then another, then a sentence, a paragraph, an entire story. A stack of blocks, teetering on the brink of collapse. A literary game of Jenga. Remove one block, does the whole tower come crashing down? Or, does it hang in the balance until you can find a new word, or sentence to keep the whole plot from completely falling apart.

  1. This kind of reminds me of the idea(s) behind Stanley Fish’s book How to Write a Sentence.
