The amazing DJ Lutz put out a challenge earlier in the week to come up with a piem. Yes that’s right a piem.
I’ll steal the explanation directly from DJ’s blog post Piphilology:
‘A piem is a literary structural challenge that is a tenet of piphilology, or the use of mnemonics to remember the digits of pi. Yes, that pi. 3.14…..
How does it work?
Each word must have a letter count that matches the corresponding digit in pi.’
With a challenge this unusual I just had to give it go. So here is my piem:
‘Why’ I said, a query revealing in itself. Three old women answered ominously, ‘because believers die.’ [3.141592653589793]
What is the most unusual writing challenge you have attempted? Feel free to give writing a piem a go and post your story in the comments here or over on DJ’s blog.
