I have invented a new kind of word puzzle: The “HOWL”, or Homonymic Word Ladder. In an ordinary word ladder, you change one word into another in a series of steps. At each step, you change one letter, in place, to form a new word. In a HOWL, you are also allowed to replace a word by its homonym. Here's a simple example: Build a HOWL from Duet to Pucker: Duet Duct Ducked Sucked Sucker Pucker.
Here's a simple one for you: Build a HOWL from rind to shine.
Please enjoy my observations and whimsies (1800 blog entries and more), and please check out the audio, eText and book versions of my fantasy novel, Raven's Gift, at ravensGift.com. At that website, you'll also find my reviews and FAQs for several iPad games.
