Constrained writing

Z loves creative writing. He sometimes has English assignments to write a story, while using all words from a list of 10 or 15 words. Typically, the first couple of paragraphs are slightly artificial, as he tries to use all words from his list. Then, all used up, it is almost as if the little author gave a big sigh of relief and the story gets smooth and breezy.
