Over to Sarah for this week’s Saturday Mix
The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our homophone sets this week are:
heal – to cure of disease
heel – hind part of foot
he’ll – contraction of “he will”
lain – past tense of lay
lane – narrow road
‘My husband has a blister on his heel which has turned septic and refuses to heal.
He’ll need an appointment with the foot doc now as he’s diabetic.’
The place where the body had lain was still warm. Despite the narrow lane, the ambulance had got to the accident site in record time.
