Crossword Brain Game Clue #7

2 Down: eternal

Summary of the clues you’ve received so far:

  1. The first word in the three-word phrase is 1 Across, the second word in the phrase is 2 Down and the third word is 3 Across just as it’s shown here.
  2. 1 Across includes 4 out the 5 vowels in English (a, e, i, o, u).
  3. Every word contains the letter “S”.
  4. No other letter is repeated in all three words (but three other letters repeat in two words)
  5. 1 Across is derived from the French word for “wooden shoe.”
  6. 3 Across: falsehoods
  7. 2 Down: eternal

Be sure you’re subscribed to get the rest of the clues!

You’ll find other puzzles for different Secret Codes at the AWB Facebook Page and in upcoming issues of my Imagination InkLinks creativity newsletter.

Solve one secret code and your name is entered the drawing for free copies of the Around the Writer’s Block or other prizes at the  Book Launch Party on August 4. Solve two Secret Codes and your name will be entered twice; solve three Secret Codes and your name will be entered three times.

At the Book Launch Party, you can play different brain games to have fun, mingle, laugh and score points on your Brain Card.

Every time you fill a Brain Card (you’ll score points by winning brain games at the party, being one of my students or coaching clients, subscribing to this blog, etc.), your name is entered for the drawings again. (There’s no limit to how many times you can enter the drawing. You don’t have to be present to win. If you can’t make it to the party, just email the secret codes to me by August 3 and I’ll enter your name.

    I got on this train late and may have missed this: when we think we’ve solved the clues, what next? (Because I can think of two solutions for this, but only one makes grammatical sense.)

      Hi Joel,
      You can either email the solution to me at rosanne@RosanneBane.com or bring it with you to the Book Launch party. Having the phrase entitles you to make an extra entry in the drawings for free copies of my book (Around the Writer’s Block). If you know all three secret phrases, you can enter three extra times, if you know two, you can enter two extra times. You can also enter by playing brain games at the party — you get points for bringing a guest, too.
      The solution doesn’t completely comply with grammatical rules (it leaves out the article “the” at the beginning), but it is a phrase I often use in classes, coaching and on this blog (when I write about the topic).
