English, English!



It's a great language. Here's a Friday/weekend challenge to all of you:

Every poster writes one sentence in the style of the above pictured writer (from left to right: Maya Angelou, Dr. Suess, Ernest Hemingway, Virginia Woolf, Salman Rushdie). I'll start it off with an actual line from an Angelou poem. Every sucessive post must be an original simulation of the author's voice and relate to the previous sentence. After Mr. Rushdie's sentence is written, we start again with Maya (from her poem Insomniac).

Good luck, here's the opening sentence:
"There are some nights when sleep plays coy, aloof and disdainful."
(Dr. Suess, you're up!)

SLEEP? Sleep dances and prances, sings and zings ... but most importantly, sleep is peace.

She liked the idea of peace. As a girl, and now as a woman.
