Add an author (game)
« on: March 11, 2006, 06:40:31 AM »
Well, here we are - procrastinating again, so I thought I'd add another little game. Don't forget to add to Deathblackfox's 3-word-story first!

Rules are simple: add an author's name (full name) beginning with the last letter of the previous entry:

NEVIL SHUTE

ENID BLYTON

etc.

so ... next one begins with N ...

 Irvin D. Yolum                   Unless your into psychotherapy in groups you probably wouldn't recognize this one but at least it gets us back in the game.    ::)  mary

Oh no...another Y!!

Ok...I'm going to cheat a bit and go for the letter of the first name, just to get us back on track.

So...Irvine Welsh....

Next author's Christian name to begin with W...

Did my dyslexia kick in? I was sure that one of the rules to this game was to use the last letter of the author's name. That would make the next author's name begin with m. Or didn't I get it right?   :D mary

So are we doing last names or first names? Last letters or first letters?

Okay, I'm getting a little bit confused, which is easy for me to do. What's the next letter supposed to be? :-\ Aelf

Edna O'brien.  Irish author... not sure what she's written.  But she's real, honest.
