Starting with a one-letter word or abbreviation, add a letter and rearrange the letters to produce the next. A clue is given for each.

Maybe your car does 0 to 60 in 10 sec., but can you do this "0 to 10" in 60 sec.? Go on - get out the stopwatch!

The hint provides the starting letters of the even numbered words.



1. String for a guitar (or maybe even for wearing?)
2. "Exempli gratia"
3. Stage of a journey
4. Narrow valley, in Scotland
5. Messenger from God
6. Friendly, affable, or cheerful
7. Genealogy or ancestry
8. Jelly base (older spelling)
9. Uplifting or moving up
10. One who preaches, hoping listeners will convert; Gospel writer

I couldn't do it in 60 seconds. It was doable, but took me a couple of minutes. Got stuck on gelatine, but the next word came easy.

Maybe it was just me, but I found the instructions inadequate. A full example of what was wanted would have been a great improvement.
