Creative Writing? Active Rewriting?

Posted at 20:16pm on 9th August 2009

Words are the tools an author can’t be without. Creative Writing depends upon their being carefully chosen and arranged. But what of the letters that make up the words?

Here are some clever anagrams which are making the rounds at present. No credit to me - they arrived in my Inbox. But I thought them too good not to pass them on.

Just rearrange the letters in each capitalised word to make a phrase that describes it, using all the same letters. You'll see what I mean.

DORMITORY: Dirty room

PRESBYTERIAN: Best in prayer

ASTRONOMER : Moon starer

DESPERATION: A rope ends it

THE EYES: They see

GEORGE BUSH: He bugs Gore

THE MORSE CODE: Here come dots

SLOT MACHINES: Cash lost in me

ANIMOSITY: Is no amity

ELECTION RESULTS: Lies – let’s recount

SNOOZE ALARMS: Alas! No more z’s

A DECIMAL POINT: I’m a dot in place

THE EARTHQUAKES: That queer shake

ELEVEN PLUS TWO: Twelve plus one

MOTHER-IN-LAW: Woman Hitler

Even the title of this article, Creative Writing? Active Rewriting? is an anagram.
