A couple nights ago my mom dreamed that she lived in a castle and had a children's book called Stanley.  The book only used the letters from the word Stanley.  When she told me about this dream I took it as a challenge, and decided to write a story only using the letters S T A N L E Y.  This proved much more difficult than anticipated.  I felt like I was playing boggle as I tried to come up with different combinations for these letters.  It's hard!  This is what I came up with, but I'm sure there are people out there that can do better.  Good luck!

  1. Wow! I think the story you just told could itself be a children's book. Don't strain yourself - that is a hard kind of creating. Take what flowed out of you and make that into a published piece. It sounds like a game almost actually. What if it was a small time home made game or a toolkit for a game that you pulled together with this as the introduction and giving the children the opportunity to make their own words like choose your own adventure. I personally am no good at this type of word play, but I know children are vastly more full of poetential. :) Love from your blog friend in Tennessee. :)

    1. Thanks! It was a fun activity, and I agree it would make a fun toolkit game! There's some fun ideas to play with here. Thanks for the feedback. Love from you're blogging buddy in Kentucky.
