    Write two stories of minimum 50 words
    1. Without X and Z
    Example:

    There lived a man with hearing problems. At times he could hear and at times not. He however pretended that he is dead. His friends believed him and talked to him in gestures or by writing. Once he heard them speak badly about him and wished he was not in company with them. He heard it and never joined them again.

    How easy, no?
    2. Without A and N
    Example :

    Testing times come but go. This guy is tough. He climbed the bus but forgot to get out before it stopped. He is sorry for this but the driver is equally tough. The driver throws him out. He is hurt. He cries for help. But people just move. He moves slowly to his home.



    Difficult, no?

    The test is good for others but not for me. But then i must thank you which lead me to searching.
    Following Wikipedia link
    Lipogram - Wikipedia
    throws lot of information about this type of word games. There is a special name for it.
    I consider the most difficult is to write a paragraph without occurrence of the letter “e”. In jokes thread I had posted an example.

    In schools Lessons First; Tests later.
    In Life tests first; lessons later .

    Thanks and Regards.

    Thanks. Some letters are frequently used when we write. Some like x and z are not used. Given a choice, to write a 500 words story, most will opt without x and z letters. This happens most of the time when we take an easy path.
