Go to this random word generator. Choose "noun" as your part of speech. Generate two nouns for each of the seven categories from very common to obscure. Now choose any other part of speech and get one word for each frequency. You should now have 21 words. Finally, in the sidebar click on "random sentence" and get one sentence. Now write a scene using your 21 words and your sentence. Extra credit if Evil Editor appears in your scene.
You must use the first words that come up, but you may reject the sentence that appears when you click on random sentence and click "new sentence." You may do this up to two times, but once you request a new sentence you can't go back to an older one. If you wouldn't mind capitalizing your words and sentence, that might make it more enjoyable for readers.
Word limit: 250, but the fewer you use the more impressed we'll be. (Unless you take the easy route of encountering all the words on a vocabulary quiz or some such ploy, in which case no one will be impressed and most will mock you.)
Deadline: Sunday, 10 AM eastern.
