Can you write a whole paragraph without the letter A?

I wouldn’t recommend it.
Honestly, your sentences will just sound wrong. Everyone will notice you’re doing something different. Your writing won’t flow smoothly. You’ll use weird words.
It’s not worth the effort involved in spending time online looking up tons of synonyms which don’t feel right, just to produce weird, stilted prose.
You’d be better off giving up, to be honest.

Why bother trying to improve upon perfection? Though I confess it is quite tempting!
But I digress...I’ll stick to my opinion: best to let well enough….um…
alone ; )

Let well enough by itself.

You used the word digress just to avoid disagree, didn't you?
Evil you! :D

Ah, this is no walk, I’d say,
In any sort of park,
But OK, I’ll do what I can, I’ll play,
If only on a linguistic lark!
Now such a task is tough - you know -
Not any old fool can do it,
But why not try your own quip, so -
That both of us can go through it!
I’ll wait but not for too, too long,
For your own such string of words…
That with any luck’ll conform to song!
(Of humans, not of birds ;)
Or just so long as it’s without,
That fifth amongst our abc’s
Which brings to mind...do you know about,
That famous book that has no “e”s?
