Playing with Words


Author Morgan Mandel has a fun new feature called WORD PLAY over at Blood Red Pencil.

The game: use the word in a sentence. Today's word is "overpowering."

Okay, okay, maybe it's fun only to a writer. But... we can all use a little practice or can spruce up our language skills sometimes, right? Yes, even we writers need to use the dictionary or thesaurus once in a while (the real one, not the computer one!).

So, give it a try! For fun, remember that other word game? (does it have a name?)

See how many words you can make from "overpowering."

over
power
pow
ring
etc

I'll report back later on how many I got. Share your number, too.
