    Mark said " I was scrambling along, earning the family's bread on magazine work at seven cents a word, compound words at single rates, just as it is in the dark present. I was the property of a magazine, a seven-cent slave under a boiler-iron contract. One day there came a note from the editor requiring me to write ten pages on this revolting text: "Considerations concerning the alleged subterranean holophotal extemporaneousness of the conchyliaceous superimbrication of the Ornithorhyncus, as foreshadowed by the unintelligibility of its plesiosaurian anisodactylous aspects."

    I hope you are doing well Mark.

    Mark! I hope you don't have to write anything to do with conchyliaceous superimbrication of the Ornithorhyncus or its plesiosaurian anisodactylous aspects because that would be just too sad.zs

    10 pages should be easy, just write
    "Considerations concerning the alleged subterranean holophotal extemporaneousness of the conchyliaceous superimbrication of the Ornithorhyncus, as foreshadowed by the unintelligibility of its plesiosaurian anisodactylous aspects."
    and you will fill a page lol
    I suppose you could just write about dinosaurs instead lol.....jimmy big_smile

    Nice one Sunseven. Where did you find all those long words?

    Actually the worst things I have had to write were punishment essays at boarding school. 10,000 word essays on:

    "The sex life of a custard skin."

    "The inside of a ping-pong ball."

    And other various silly titles.
