    Interesting, though I have no idea how to incorporate the Japanese stuff, it feels like cheating since I have very little interest in it, so it would feel bad trying to speak those words as if I deem them true.

      That’s why I said that you could use any language. For example for Yojimbo you could just use the English bodyguard. There are only 3 Japanese terms as well you can delete 2 since you only have to use 10 of the 12 words. So you could delete Kami and Yojimbo and switch katana to sword for example. Like with all my challenges you have a lot of freedom to create as you like. While the wordles sometimes seem themed there is no restriction on theme for the Wordles whatsoever. Often I am surprised at the outcomes XD

        Yeah, but to me that would feel like cheating! 😀

        To me Wordles are great because the outcomes are so unexpected. I can construct a Wordle that seems themed for say a robbery and end up with poems on every subject except for robbery that’s what I love about them the creativity that people bring. I don’t mind if you use Serbian words for the Japanese ones if you like and it’s not cheating since I specified in the challenge to use whatever language. If you don’t want to use Serbian because it’s too easy and Japanese is just not you enough pick a language you aren’t familiar with but are interested in and look up the words and set a story/poem in that culture. That might require some studying, historical research which could amp up your challenge ,-) I just happened to know the words in Japanese and wanted to do something multi-lingual. I don’t even know what bodyguard is in Swedish! yikes.

    I decided to make my response a Japanese-based moral tale. I hope it worked as I’m not the best at Japanese history and lore.

    I loved this wordle when you posted it last year. I immediately wrote this ( https://vignettecreativewriting.wordpress.com/2015/06/09/the-lonely-prince/ ) in response, but never got around to posting it on my blog for a reason or two. I hope that it is okay I am posting this so late!
