Word Jam Challenge

Time to get those creative juices flowing.

For this Challenge, we’ll be looking at the Animal Mysteries studylist.
Powerful words and thought-provoking stories — there’s so much we don’t know about our fellow Earthlings!

To participate, you are to write a very short — only a paragraph or two — story that includes as many words as you can from this studylist.

The Rules:

  • Your “Animal Mysteries” story must contain at least five words from the studylist and make some kind of sense.  No fair stringing words together that don’t mean anything.
  • The story can be about anything you want, as long as it’s not offensive or mean.
  • The story must be no more than 250 words (brevity is the soul of wit, after all).

Scoring will be based on:

  • Word Moxie (using the words in a clear, interesting, and meaningful way)
  • Storytelling (crafting a smooth, compelling narrative)
  • Overall creativity


Winner gets:

  • Their story posted on the front page of the blog as a sticky for a whole week after the Challenge ends
  • A $10 iTunes gift card

Left brain language + right brain invention = full brain AWESOME!

So get to it!  Let’s see your Word Jam masterpieces!
