So Janet Reid – the fabulous literary agent who is know for her snarkiness and sharkiness often runs contests where she gives out a whole bunch of random words and asks her followers to string them together into something clever – usually and short story of some sort.

I want to write 10 of these – I would love to write a whole book of these. I used to write a lot of poetry. What happened? I miss it. Maybe this is a call to start again.
