Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Bonus Wordle – Shakespearian Style

Welcome to another wordle this Monday. The selection is offered by another regular here at MLMM. It features words culled from Shakespeare, which is a great source and so we’re excited to see what you can make of this. Please be sure to stop in at Cressida de Nova’s lovely blog and say hi.

So 12 words = a fun challenge. Use at least 10. The words can be altered to suit your piece – flash fiction, poetry, short story etc.
Remember to tag your posts with MLMM or Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and Wordle. Create your links and pingbacks here and link up with Mr. Linky, lest he get lonely. You have a week to play.

So this week’s words – Shakespearian Style:


1. bough
2. distils [*alternate spelling of distills]
3. owls
4. musk [a strong-smelling reddish-brown substance that is secreted by the male musk deer for scent-marking and is an important ingredient in perfumery| a relative of the monkey flower that was formerly cultivated for its musky perfume, which has been lost in the development of modern varieties| *late Middle English: from late Latin muscus, from Persian mušk, perhaps from Sanskrit muṣka ‘scrotum’ (because of the similarity in shape of a musk deer’s musk bag)]
5. viol [a musical instrument of the Renaissance and baroque periods, typically six-stringed, held vertically and played with a bow]
6. stained
7. swagger
8. sodden
9. strike
10. tinctured [be tinged, flavored, or imbued with a slight amount of| denoting a dye or pigment|‘imparted quality,’ likened to a tint imparted by a dye]
11. cowslip [a European primula with clusters of drooping fragrant yellow flowers in spring, growing on dry grassy banks and in pasture]
12. villain

So off you go to create.  And thank you Cressida de Nova for your selection 🙂

♠ I’ve provided some definitions in case these words are unfamiliar

About scribblersdip

I like weeds and words. I'm chaos theory in motion. I'm ironic and hilarious. I think garden dirt under fingernails is smart and no hands should be callus free. I play with plants and dictionaries.

      no problems 🙂 and thank you 🙂 (it helps to link up with all the sources and ways, for many reasons – i.e. pingbacks have to be approved and those who don’t have WP accounts but rather blogger can only “live link” or use Mr. Linky. So whatever works for you. 🙂

      and just a note: it helps to keep things clear if you either enter your blog name, your user name or the actual title of your post on Mr. Linky – keep it simple for those reading and responding to keep track of where they’ve been 🙂
