If you have an idea, want to try it commitment free, or forgot to send one in…add “spare” to the subject line when you send the email. Or just grab a sample from below!
|Spare||The teacher had set the class to finding out how many squares there were in a quarter of a chessboard. The pupils were discovering that it varied depending on how the board was quartered.|
|Spare||As she drove through the traffic that evening, suddenly the taillights in front of her, the streetlights overhead, even the signal lights acquired colorful halos of light, with evil streaks seeming to crawl along the edges.|
|Spare||The horses ran across the field, and up the rainbow into the sky.|
|Spare||Laborious, Prompting, Stretching, Tall…|
|Spare||The hedgehog stood up as far as he could, and painstakingly rearranged the drying rowan berries.|
That’s all for now…see you in the comments.
