In 1939 Earnest Vincent Wright wrote a fifty thousand word novel called Gadsby.
Nothing remarkable about that you may think, but the entire novel was written without using the letter 'e'.

This is known as a lipogram and is a most difficult way of writing. Try to construct a short story, or a short script this way and you will find out just how tricky it is...Good luck.
