    Spaz Out!

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by witch wyzwurd, May 16, 2008.

    Rules: Take the word from previous poster and either eliminate letters that follow each other or add letters in sequence to form a new word.

    Example:


    Poster 1: owl
    Poster 2: owlet
    Poster 3: let
    Poster 4: letter
    Poster 5: let
    Poster 6: outlet
    Poster 7: outhouse
    Poster 8: thou
    Poster 9: though
    Poster 10: tho

    Ok. Let me reiterate the rules. Any letters added have to be in order. No inserting letters here or there in previous word... so:

    spin: spinster is ok
    spin: spring is not (because r and g are not in one-after-another order).

    The previous word cannot be broken up.

    Technically, that's not reiterating, that's including - :p

    ASPIRE doesn't include ABLE

    ABLE: BEARABLE, PALATABLE, etc...

    The example I included in the first post should make it easy enough to understand

    *sigh* I'm not intending to get on your bad side here - the post with able wasn't there when I responded to what preceded it, ok?

    ASPIRE wouldn't have worked anyways because it doesn't include all of the letters of SPIN. You can either eliminate letters or add them, not both...

    good game. Just er . . . not to take anyone's side here, but in wishing's defense, in the example "outhouse" you both eliminated and added letters.
