How hard is it to post to all without using an "E"

Try it. It will bring thoughts of a painful kind. As in - My cranium hurts.

If you think about it, it's not all that difficult! as long as you give it a bit of thought.

if that author of 'A void' ('la disparition' in original format) can do it, I think that its a possibility for us too.

I think that it is a odd and curious thing to do anyway. On what basis would you want to act out such a task? I fail to fathom this duty, but I know that a man, a woman, both or many will find this fit for a functional aim.

Yours,

In 1937 Ernest Vincent Wright wrote a 50,110 word novel name Gadsby that was entirely E-less.

To accomplish this completely ‘e-less’ goal, Wright fixed firmly down the "E" key on his keyboard rendering the key virtually useless. He managed to write this novel in just 165 days

What about, "Mr. Wright"?

I can also do puns and irony, but not slapstick.

Particularly difficult, is it not. To construct a substantial post containing no sight of that symbol which stands fifth to our usual way of thinking would look a highly tricky task.

To fashion a solitary paragraph in this way has hurt my brain, so I shall not push my luck and go for two.

That digit which ordinarily follows two is right out.
