Mad Libs, that fun game where you collect random words BEFORE you know the story!

How to play:

1. First, leave a comment letting me know you want to play AND pick a number 1-3
2. I will then PM you your list of words. You will want to re-post them in our thread and update your list as you find the words.

Your list of words will looking something like:

1. plural noun:
2. number:
3. adverb:

You will use your books to gather random words to fill your list! You won't know what your story is so the goofier and more random your words, the funner your story will be!

3. PM me when you are done collecting your words and I will send your story.
You will replace all capitalized/underlined words with your found words.

4. Then post your story with your completed words and books you read so others can enjoy your story (but please use spoiler tags!)

A Few Quick Tips

* You can find words using book title or finding them inside of a book
* You can use as many or few books to complete one mad lib as you want
* You may play more than one Mab Libs game

Just in case as a reminder:(view spoiler)
