Figured I'd throw this little game out there to see if anyone found it interesting.

How it works is you give 5 words and you have incorporate those words in your opening lines.

Example:

Shadow, grape, monster, genius, enlightened

As Sheila mindlessly walked  passed the shadow of death, she shoved yet another palatable grape into her delicate mouth.  Being as though she was not aware of the monster who longed to hold her in its malicious grasp, the fiend followed suit in hopes his genius plan would work. Delectable fruit in hand, Sheila kept walking and shoving as deaths appetite grew stonger. Yet, tonight hunger would only be suppressed by those who had been truly enlightened by life and all that it had to offer. For now, life would move forth and death would prevail.
You are what you eat!

OK, I'm game :)  So what's the idea exactly?  Just literally write an opening passage, or a full story?  Do the words have to be in sequence?  Are we allowed to use plurals of thwe words?  Do I ask too many questions and make simple things too complicated? ;D

A shadow grape is grey in colour unlike its relatives the red and green skin grapes.  Though a monster in terms of size, it lacks the sweetness of the others, and therefore was not used in wine making.  The chef that makes a paste of it and uses it in his cooking, will be lauded as a genius.  For the tang of the grape is carried through with out the fruity essence. 
All of this passed through Roderick's mind as he enlightened the corpse with four 500 watt halogen lamps, and plucked out one large grey eyeball.  Slipping it into a ziploc back along with its pair. 
Moonlighting as a mortician definitely had a upside for famous chef roderick.

The shadow of the grape turned into a monster with a genius IQ an enlightened all the other little grapes in Fruit Land.

 :P Stupid and pointless, I know, but I couldn't resist....
