Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 10 October 2020!
This week we are seeing double with ‘Double Take’.
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:
ark – vessel
arc – portion of a circle
elude – escape from
illude – to deceive
Something didn’t look quite right. He’d followed the plans to the letter, but somehow his Ark had a few too many arcs in it and it was extremely doubtful it would float, let alone carry anything. Oh well, back to the drawing board.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing and how she wished she could elude her current situation. It had not all been of her making, but the rose coloured glasses had assisted him to illude her.
