This is a tangent from Dulcamara's word game linked here: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=88261

That game invites people to make all the words they can using only the letters contained in a given long word--in the first instance here, UNEXPLAINED. That got me thinking about what stories could be told using only the words made from those letters. Here are a couple of sort story-starts that came to mind using the words from UNEXPLAINED. I'd be interested in seeing your story continuations using the sae limited letters (or seeing your story starts and trying a continuation of my own...)

Story 1.
In an alien land, Alex, an exiled lad in a plaid, pined and ailed. Pale Annie pled, “Dinna die!”

Story 2.
I explained a penal plan. I lied.

In denial, Ned and Lex, a Dane in dun, led a plain plan. (Sorry, I know it's lame but it's so much fun! :mrgreen: )
