Ever since I started writing my book, Remembrandt, I have been obsessed with anagrams (several of which you will find in the book). Now for those of you not familiar with what an anagram is, let me explain. An anagram is a word or phrase that can be rearranged to create a new word or phrase. For example:
Astronomer = Moon starer
Agree = Eager
Float = Aloft
Where you put a space or how the words are separated do not matter. For my own personal rules, it's only a real anagram if it makes sense or is clever in some way. Like my name, Robin King, could be rearranged to be "brink go in". Even though all those words are real words, it doesn't really make sense and has nothing to do with me. On the other hand, you could rearrange my name to say "boring kin'. Now I can surely see a few of my family members huffing up in anger right now, but we are a boring lot!
1.) In honor of someone quoted in my book, find the anagrammed name in this phrase (don't forget that is doesn't matter where the spaces are - you just have to use all the letters):
Hear me as I will speak = ?
2.) Find an anagram for your name (you could use your middle or last name too, or just your first name). See if you can find something clever that works for your name! Just post your answers in the comments section.
3.) Follow me on this blog!
***PRIZE***The first person to come up with the correct answer for #1 and the cleverest (is that a word?) anagram of their own name: You will receive a hardback copy of Cinder by Marissa Meyer, one of my new favorite books.
I'm excited to see what you all come up with.
