Astoundingly Alluring Alliteration – The Intro

In the last class of term on my writing course, my teacher Hilary spoke to us about “sound”, and about how to make your pieces sound good using techniques such as assonance, consonance, alliteration, onomatopoeia and rhyme.

Alliteration is something I enjoy doing, and have done quite a bit.  Here’s a sample from the piece I wrote in class during that lesson:

It’s time to tell the

tales of terror and

triumph and tragedy

that tentatively

take shape in your head.

 

And here’s a sample from another alliterative piece I’ve written:

 

Curious characters cautiously cross crafted countries.

Defeating dastardly demons and duelling devilish druids.

Executing exciting escapes in entertaining episodes.

 

I tell you this because I’m introducing a new blog challenge.  I’m going to attempt to write a vaguely interesting alliterative passage of some description for each letter of the alphabet.  Look for A soon!
