    Creative Couplets

    The object of this game is simple: To pair two words, that together form an interesting turn of phrase, idea or expression. And each person who posts, uses the second word in the previous pair to begin a new pair.

    Example:

    Post # 1: love bird

    Post # 2: bird brain

    Post # 3: brain shrinking

    Post # 4: shrinking violet

    ...and so on.


    I'll begin with this:

    published book


    (next post should be book ______
