Writing Exercise

My friend P. told me about this and it's a lot of fun! The next time you're bored, try this:

Write something where every line starts with the next letter of the alphabet. It can be a letter, a poem, a story, a song, or dialogue between two people, like this:

Alright, have you seen my llama?
But why do you ask?
'Cause I can't find the bloody creature!
Don't you swear at me!
Every time he goes missing, he runs to you.

and so on... I finished this one (my first) in about 5 minutes. It just really flowed.

No, sorry, you don't get to know why it's a llama, which is a shame, 'cause it's a great story...
