Last week I started a new Word game.Â I gave you three words and a whole week in which to write a story using those words.Â Some of you whined and cried and claimed the words were too tough.Â Seven of you grabbed your pencils and started scribbling.Â And the incomparable, Dr. John, used all three words all week.
Last week’s words were: cynicocratical (governed by cynical people with cynical ideas);Â isangelous (equal to the angels); and volgivagant (commoner; riff-raff; no-account)
And last week’s players were:
- Lisa — Check the comments for her â€œstoryâ€.
- Betty — The best story she’s written to date (my opinion)
- Dr. John — wherein he mocks me
- Cindy — Uses the words describing a day in her life.
- Thom — describes Eden.
- Alice –Â talks to her cat
- Nessa — saves Joan of Arc, sort of.
I want to change things up just a bit.Â With people posting whenever, some folks didn’t get anybody coming by to read their stories.Â So here are the new rules:
Every Thursday I will give you three new words.Â You have until the following Thursday to compose a story using all three of the words.Â Then, on that following Thursday, post your story.Â After you post, come by here and sign in in the comments.Â Then, just like up above, I will put your links up for all to visit.
Got it?Â Good!Â In that case:Â Your story is due on:Â February 19th, 2009
This weekâ€™s words:
I promise, I looked all three of these words up in the dictionary and/or on the web (using Google Search) and found definitions for them all.Â One of these words is new to me.Â 🙂
