Like words? Think you can use them? Prove it. I’ll provide three words, you make the best sentence possible. You have to use all three. You can submit multiple entries but only through multiple comments. You can change tense, but not part of speech. If it’s a verb, it’s a verb. For example, if the word is suffer, you can use suffered, but not suffering. I’ll provide common definitions, but don’t be afraid to vary from the original meaning as needed. Quality wins over length. One sentence. The rest is up to you. Make it hot.
I’ll judge the best sentence. Why me? Because it’s my contest.
On with the show. Today’s words are:
- malleable – adj. figurative: easily influenced, pliable. OR able to be hammered or pressed permanently out of shape without breaking or cracking
- waylay – verb. stop or interrupt someone and detain them in conversation or trouble them in some other way
- funicular – noun. railroad on a mountainside operating by cable with ascending and descending cars counterbalanced
Can you make it work? I think so. Depending on the number of entries, I may leave it open one or two days, possibly longer.
