Wanted: Words. More Words.

I want to write more. A long while back when Ammani got me hooked to the Project Why business, an innocuous collection and random collection of three words really yanked me out of my story writing hiatus.

Hence gentle readers, I give you this. Give me a set of four words. Any four words. I’ll try and write a story that connects those four words. Well, a story or a poem. If you don’t want to post the words here – well mail them over to nehavish[at]gmail[dot]com.

The more unusual the words, the more likely we can up with something interesting here. On the other hand, some words only lend themselves to clichés. For instance, for Project Why I had words like Goldilocks, Teen Taal, mamanaar, Baby, Cigarette, Kamal Haasan, Burp, Goddess, Disposable, Triceratops, velvet, tabla, Ghatotkacha, Rumsfeld and Banian, Ferrari, Vijayakanth, Salma Hayek, Bashi-Bazouk, curd-rice, Kremlin, Ilayaraja, sleep.

Get it?

PS – If you haven’t read my Project Why fiction series – here you go.

    this reminds me of this thing in IIMB that some of my senior batches used to do – it was called “challenge CP” (CP = class participation)

    it’s like i give you a set of words. and the next time you speak out in class (addressing the prof, etc.) you need to use these words in the sentence. the more words you use, the more points you get.

    so here are the 4 words:

    challenge class participation point
