Can't Put the Pen Down…

One Letter Later

Solve, Solver, Resolve
Revolve, Revolver, Revolter,
Loiterer, Reorient, Overtire,
Retrieve, Reliever, Relieves,
Reviles, Restive, Sterile,
Toilers, Outliers, Resolute,
Troubles, Absolute, Tableaus,
Adulates, Adulate, Default,
Deflate, Floated, Bloated,
Albedos, Absolved, Absolve.


In case you didn’t notice – each word is only one letter away from the one before it, either a letter was added, dropped, or swapped. I enjoyed the scenarios that played through my imagination as I progressed through the evolution from solve to absove; hope you do too 🙂

    Fun, got my imagination going. This is a bit like what I do when I start a rhyming play, doing rifts of words and then string a few of the most compatible ones together to come up with a short scene.

    • I’m really not sure where it came from but it was a bit of a challenge and a puzzle to find words that fit the ‘add, drop, or swap’ criteria. Another enjoyable bit of wordplay. 🙂
      Hey! Let’s write a musical!
