The last few days have been a struggle, probably because of alternating my starting word. There is also an inclination from this editor, apparently, to try to avoid the most usual vowel appearances.

No use asking me what my starter word was. I've forgotten within minutes. I did it in four today, about three hours ago, and can remember neither my starter nor the answer. I'm as likely as not going to pick a random word from whatever I'm typing or reading at the time.

I might look at this post for a starter for tomorrow. The candidates could be "today" or "might" or "could" or "start" (a slight cheat there...) or "cheat." All good. But not "going" or "there." I think I quite often use the second line to try to eliminate double consonants such as TH, CH, SH, ST, TR, CR, PR, PL, BR, WH, that sort of thing, depending on what happened in line 1.

But look what I've just done. I've added "think," "often," and "thing" to my starter candidate list. But not "quite."

Jon, I tried that one to the crash and burn result of a zero today. My second word was one of mine and it didn't work either.

It's difficult to think of another word without one of the letters in your first one, to do a clean play without repeating any of the non-working letters.

I haven't trusted the NYT to keep my Wordle stats ever since a hiatus in the early days (I managed to recover, somewhat painstakingly, all my lost results because in those days I was enthusiastically exchanging my achievements every day with friends and family on WhatsApp). So I've now done it 320 times and I put a dot next to the appropriate score on a pice of paper every day. My commonest score is 4 (116 times). I've gone better than 4 103 times and worse than 4 101 times. I've failed five times and done it in one once (he crowed...)

Jon's word has been added to my list - it isn't one I've ever used. Some of my favorites:

EARTH
AISLE
OAKEN

They follow the trial of vowels, but some of the consonants can make all of the difference.

I had what was an achievement for me on Christmas Day. I reached 100 in my streak. The streak only went on to 102 as I then forgot to play for a day. I'm now taking a bit of a braek from the game.

All my 100 used the same starter word.

Every now and then I do use a word with QU because of all of the letters, Q is the only one least likely to be in play. I haven't dont today's puzzle yet.

I have a sheet of paper on the side of the desk with a running list of words that I like to start with, and I work out the puzzle on the page on occasion. I've done it enough now I can usually just work on the screen without resorting to pencil and paper.

I got it in one yesterday. No resort to hints, tips clues or spouse! I did what I do every time, just fish around for a word from something I'm reading at the time I decide have a go at Wordle. My only rules are that my starter word mustn't have two of the same letter or contain Q, X, J or Z. Yesterday it was a word from a Mudcat post I'd just posted!

Of course, that was not an achievement but just a huge stroke of luck. I actually felt a bit frustrated that I didn't have a challenge on my hands....

I don't remember what they are after solving unless they were actually written down. If there have been complaints perhaps the editor got wise and stopped being so obvious.

A couple of days ago, by the second try, I had four of the five letters in the right place which left me with only three possible words. One of those words was topical for the time of year but it wasn't the answer. The correct word didn't have any topical connection that I could see.

The solution to Wordle 544 could, most likely, be connected to a current news term on any day of the year, to my mind.

SRS,
I take back everything that I said. I read an article complaining of exactly what you say – themed, rather than random answers to Wordle puzzles. Apparently, the NY Times appointed a Wordle Editor on November 7 and, since then, topical words have been appearing. In fact, her very first word was BEGIN. That was followed by MEDAL on November 11. As I am in the UK, Thanksgiving doesn’t appear on my radar, so words related to it passed me by. Perhaps PRIME was, in fact, related to Black Friday, despite my doubt.

How many Americans go anywhere, any day of the year, without driving?

If I wanted to stretch things, I could say that the answer for the day before, PRIME, was related to Black Friday purchases delivered by Amazon - except that it wasn't Black Friday and Amazon don't sit around for the other 51 weeks, waiting for something to do.

This discussion could fit well into the "Precognition" thread as an example of people searching for significance in mere coincidence or, indeed, searching for coincidences that aren't really there.

As I said up-thread, you must have different topics than I do.

A day or two before that the word was "drive." I think 55 million Americans were expected to drive somewhere for Thanksgiving. I didn't write them all down, but noticed a shift to words that have extra meaning this week, making them somewhat memorable.

I'm thinking about setting it to "Hard mode" - where you have to use any letters you've uncovered in future guesses. But that would eliminate the ability to use a line to put something with a totally new set of letters in (a throw away word to see if it lands on some other letters to use).
