My chances of submitting an entry for the last two word games were ruined by my ridiculous propensity to ration my oh-so-sacred words. I found myself chained to my usual method of working in stages: thinking up ideas, jotting down some notes and perhaps the odd sentence or two, before going all out for the final thing. This time I've decided to take a somewhat cooler approach, slapping down words like salmon in a fishery. Yeah, okay, give me a chance. No longer will I loiter for days on end with nary a phrase to show for it. Nope, while yesterday I burped, today I write! And thus I have moulded a piece of prose with the grandeur of a lunar crater. Signing, dating and submitting!
My scorecard for the 5625th game of Countdown, followed by the usual word game rules and the round-up of last week's moving and insightful article from Tearose (complete with bonus article from the archives).
