Vocabulary Builder

What's the best way to study for the verbal portions of your favorite standardized test? Our solution is to write with them. To this end, we have collected a list of GRE vocabulary words that we aren't familiar with and randomly divided them into groups of ten assigned to different days. Each day (or days), we will write whatever fanfic or original fic or whatever comes to mind, using the given words selected for that day. You can find the daily lists and the finished writings down below. Feel free to make use of our random word list generator or your own vocabulary lists to write your own challenges!
