    Welcome to the Wordy Fic challenge!

    My SAT studying and a challenge from my mom was pretty much the inspiration for this little challenge.

    So here?s the deal?

    Every challenge?once a week I suppose. You?ll get a list of words and a word limit. You?ll then wright a fic within the word limit and it has to include all the words given.

    Sounds easy? Why don?t you try it and see how easy it is *evil smile*
    It?s a actually quite fun?trust me :)

    The challanges are open ended so you may jump in at any time you want.
    Have fun! And make sure to link your story in the thread :)

    Oh my dear god. [face_laugh] I can imagine someone coming up with a "V for Vendetta"-style fic. I really like this idea! Maybe I can improve my vocabulary. :p

    Where do you pull your words from? SAT books or flipping through the dictionary?

    Do we have to use the words exactly as given, or can we use a variation (for example, "absolved" for "absolve" or "aeration" for "aerate")?

    As a fan of V for Vendetta, I couldn't resist being inspired by that comment, Jade. This probably can't count towards the challenge as it has nothing to do with Star Wars, but nonetheless here is a small homage to that amazing alliteration-athon, acircled on anarchism.



    A for Anarchist


    An Anarchist. In actuality, an astute and assiduous appraiser of amalgamated administrations, but viewed with acrimony and apoplexy by the assorted angles of the anachronistic aristocracy. Being neither apathetic nor ambivalent toward the archetype of that abhorred asylum of the acetic avant-garde and the advantaged?the State?she goes forth to alleviate and absolve the historical anthology of adversity accentuated by the aforementioned augmentation of anthropocentrism.

    With alacrity, the aesthetic must be assessed, the arena populi?once arable, now arid?must be aerated, without amoral allegation or ambiguous arbitration. Neither with aimless assumption, able-minded associations of the body politic must ascend, avian-like, with hearts full of adulation and affection, in pursuit of amelioration and autonomy.



    You can check it if you like, I used the whole list and came in at just over 100 words.[/smug]

    Well since ou've already done it I don't really see a problem with it. Though it would be better to write something new (if only for the sake of indexing) however is a certain group of words sparks creative sparks in anyone for an on going fic I don't think there should be a problem.

    Hello Alley -- Just a thought. When you get to the really strange words (Q's, X, Y, Z's), would you consider combining the letters? For example, give us a set of 35 words that start with P or Q instead of 35 P words and 35 Q words. I don't know if a coherent story could be written using really weird words, unless the story was about really weird words.

    You're the Boss of this Challenge, so it's totally your call. I'm just tossing that out there.
