Epic – 2011-03-07 10:43 PM Am I correct in assuming you don’t write fiction?  Because if you do and you can write a novel without at least one character saying “got”, well, you must have built that world.  


Ah, shouldn’t be too hard.  It must have been pretty bad because he finally self-published it, but back in 1939, I think, Ernest Write wrote a 50,000 word novel called “Gadsby”.  In all those 50,000 words, he never used the letter “e”.  Now that would be tough.
