Wordle # 170
Welcome to this week’s Wordle. Although I’ve hosted several different prompts here on MLMM, I’ve never created a wordle – although I’m up to the challenge! I love words and teasing out their essences, so I’m going to give this a shot – and I hope you find it challenging and intriguing, without being too difficult.
This week, I chose some words that I think you can thread into a story or poem or whatever sets your mind alight. I’m thinking the words may initially stump you, but maybe if you sit with them for a bit, you’ll see some playful possibilities.
12 words as usual – and bonus points if you can use the 12th as a verb. Some of the words are “connector word ideas” – i.e. raspberry jam toast, or sibling rivalry, for example. You can modify the words, i.e. tenses, to make it work for your pieces. Normally we consider using at least 10 out of 12, and I’ll say – yup, give it a go – but honestly, just have some fun with this and see what happens.
And for this exercise, I’d like it if you could limit your play time to using just the wordle here as your prompt (i.e. no mash-ups) unless it really relates to some other MLMM prompt or another hosted prompt in a very direct way. Thanks.
So you have a week to create and play – please link up by engaging Mr. Linky and leaving links and pingbacks. Include the tags MLMM or Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and wordle for reference.
* Added note: if anyone has word lists they might like to offer, please email me at:
and I’ll be happy to comtemplate using them and offering you a guest posting for upcoming wordles.
thanks and happy wordling –

1. raspberry jam toast
2. firing squad
3. sibling rivalry
4. goldfish (the animal)
6. rock opera (i.e. the rock band Queen, The Who or Meatloaf composed songs that had elements of story-telling in the tradition of opera – use this as your point of inspiration to get a feeling for the idea)
10. clamour (n. or v.)
* 12. smelter – bonus points if you can make this into a verb that somehow ties in with your creations
I’m looking forward to reading whatever you create – flash, short short story, poem etc.
