    Find that word in your WIP

    So, I saw this game on a different forum, who, for the record, stole it from another forum, and I thought it might be fun to try here. I don't know if it will work, but I'll give it a shot.

    The idea of the game is that someone says a word and the next person finds that word in their manuscript and posts that sentence.

    P1: Car
    P2: The car broke down. Moon
    P#: The moon is bright tonight.

    Awful examples, I know. If it is in a piece of dialogue write the "said" or action verb too.

    No critiquing. This is for fun, and I don't expect polished manuscripts to be coming through.
    Don't pick some huge word. Be creative, but keep it simple.
    No names. (unless your character is named after an object)

    EDIT: It can also be different variations of the word like car and cars. Or past and present tense.

    I'll start: Tree
