Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 25 November 2017!

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 four words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our first homophone set this week is:

bolder – more courageous
boulderlarge rock

Our second set of homophones is:

flew – past tense of fly
flu – short for influenza
flue – chimney pipe

You may be thinking to yourself, How can I use homophones in my writing?
Luckily, Kat at Literary Devices, has some examples for you.
