For the May/June contest @kittyumbrass has selected 'funnel', 'justice', and 'sending'.  There will be a 7000.  Yup it's a big one.  Good luck to all.

@Shocker -

I vaguely recalled some advice from RRH on good topic combinations, and it was something like "an abstract noun, a concrete noun, and a verb or adjective". I was feeling a bit vague so just grabbed the first ones I could think of XD

@kittyumbrass i really like them, my problem was that the first idea I had with them was the very obvious one. I‘m now exploring another idea, also following  rrh advice of not being so bloody literal.

I guess that's proof it's good advice for picking topics!

A fascinating and challenging assortment of words. For my clarity does 7000 mean, maximum, minimum or about...

@seeker  The word count (7000) is the maximum word count.  There is a 5% over allowance (for 7000 words it's 350) but there is no minimum.
