Forum:I ask for assistant(s) with a work I am going to start on
I have in my head a concept for an article that has potential for much glory, the only problem is that I believe it will be a tremendous hardship to write, so I turn to someone for assistance. The concept is this: an article written without the letter E on the book Gadsby, the book written entirely without the letter E. It took me five minutes just to write the title without the letter E.
This isn't to say I just have the concept, though. I have an outline all drawn out and a few sentences down, but for the majority of the prose I'm entirely stumped (as is the case with pictures, but that's not as big a problem).
Is there anybody out there? --02:41, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

- You're not really selling it very well. Remember, if you end up doing it all by yourself (I did mention that you're not sellling it very well, right?), all you have is time. Uncyclopedia has no deadlines. -- 06:10, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
- Try transposing the sentence "in space, nobody can hear you scream" to words without an "e" inside them..."In vacuum, nobody can pick up your ululation!" Phew, that was hard. Include me out. Not enough brain cells left. -- di Mario 18:36, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Feel free. I already wrote Lipogram without Es, (Lipogram being the name for a piece of work missing a letter - have a look!), so I'm quite experienced at translating into E-less language if you need a hand. It is slow work though, and I'm not guaranteeing I'd give it my full attention. Also bear in mind that the actual Gadsby was quite a funny idea in the first place, so this needs to stand out on its own aside from just the idea.
Finally, just for fun, I've rewritten your original post as a lipogram: "I'm thinking of doing a bit of writing that might pick up a lot of acclaim. My only catch is that I think I will find it slightly tricky, so I turn to you all for aid. My thought is this: a work not including our fourth post-A ASCII thing, on Gadsby, a book that's also without it. It took roughly six shifts of my clock's big hand just in making this forum topic."
