The idea is every week Raven (View From A Raven's Nest) gives you between 8 and 10 words/phrases and you have to create a small but coherent paragraph using every one of them and the same with the mini challenge. You can do either or both it's up to you, and you can post them on your blog or email them to Raven.
The words/phrases for this week's Ten Word Challenge is: fruitcake, necromancer, gibberish, marshland, Lone Ranger, hog-wild, effluvia, plaintiff, phonograph, fern
And for the Mini Challenge: frozen, history, myrmidon, Shylock, incapacitated
I've decided to be brave and attempt a MEGA-WORDZZLE this week. Here it is:
Miss Funnyfanny, the necromancer, welcomed her clients with the William Tell Overture, (which everyone knows as the theme to the Lone Ranger), playing on the phonograph. She explained that rousing music helped raise the vibes in the room where the Séance was to be held. Her home was out in the wilds, almost in the marshland, it was a beautiful place and the garden was full of fern. As they sat down to take part in the Séance they noticed what could only be described as effluvia. They didn’t mention the stink as they didn’t want to appear rude, especially when Miss F promised them fruitcake and tea after the Séance. As Miss F slipped effortlessly into a trance the words coming out of her mouth could only be described as gibberish and the deeper she went into the trance the more hog-wild she became, thrashing about like a mad woman. Miss F’s myrmidon, Ethel, stood guard over her like a frozen statue making sure that none of the guests broke the circle, which could, in certain circumstances, cause a medium to become incapacitated, she also collected the contributions from the guests which went towards paying the shylock they owed a fortune to. After the Séance the guests left the house complaining to each other that they thought Miss F was a charlatan and Lord Farquarharson vowed to look into her history. He discovered that Miss F was well known for scams whereby she extracted money under false pretenses and Lord Farquarharson eventually became the plaintiff in the latest case against her. Of course Miss Funnyfanny and Ethel fled the country before they could be brought to court, just as they'd done many times before.
