Lexulous Fiend

Lexulous is a brain massage,
Play with words, (no less an homage,)
Puzzles distract
and minds contract
Leaving room for fol-ee-age
To grow and bloom, in my little room
My Work-in-Progress before me looms
Throw in a "zany" and while I wait for you
Sentences flow, and sometimes too
When I see your "cheeses" and your "queans"
I am inspired to lean
More into my work: I'm a Lexulous fiend.

Okay, that was pretty terrible. I don't blame you if you stop reading, but Léna's Lit.Life would be nowhere without Lexulous, a game I've been playing on Facebook soon after I started this blogging business. It is Scrabble on steroids, with eight letters instead of seven. Friend and fabulous YA author Daphne Grab and I started having ongoing games: in fact, she just kicked my butt with an 83 point word, REAWAKING! Damn, girl!

Words have the power to both relax and stimulate me (for good or evil), in real life and in books, so why not in games? I play with a librarian in Connecticut who routinely wipes the floor clean with me, and I have an ongoing game going with left coast YA authors Lish McBride and Jen Violi.

So go ahead and friend me on Facebook (if you haven't already) and start a game with me - you'll really be helping me and my creative writing out!
