Word Dares

Time for another new creation, and the weekly invitation for the Gentle Reader to give it a test drive in the comments.


Love Quadrangle noun
Word Smith: Bonnie Staring

UPDATE - our intrepid word smith has provided a definition and the original sentence in the comments! Give it a look!


Apprentice Writer gives it a spin:
"Ella knew she had no hope of ever forming a corner of a love quadrangle. Not only did she lack the necessary time management skills, but she had failed geometry at school."

Don't they do this sort of thing as plot device over at EC all the time? Except one or two of the corners is a shapeshifter or a warecat?

Bonnie said...

Thanks for the credit Maya!

Definition: A romantic situation that can leave a woman feeling rather cornered at times.

Bonnie's spin:
Jewel was torn between Mike, the writer, Parker, the actor, and Brock, the character he portrayed. She was caught in a love quadrangle -- but only two of the men were real...and one of them was sauteed in wrong sauce.

carrie - i don't know. do they? how cool. but the essential point is: do they actally use the correct terminology and describe it as a love quadrangle?

bonnie - yay! the wrong sautee sauce quote!
