My first Lexigram that I remember was the GOD/DOG one.

How I learned about Lexigrams!
My first Lexigrams came about when I was about 5 years old whilst sitting utterly bored in church in 1959
I was doodling on the back of the sermon program foldout.
I noticed that GOD became DOG by simply rearranging the letters. I did not know it at the time, but I had at that moment discovered Anagrams for myself!
Fascinated I then began "playing" with the name:
"GOD".
GO GOD GO!
GO DOG GO!
GO OG GO!
I was laughing myself silly and got slapped hard for it. LOL!
However in that moment of a wordy/letter eureka,
I was addicted to Lexigramming!
I continued looking....
JESUS....has the word US in it!

Later whilst visiting my Great Grandmother; my parents told her about my "playing" with the letters found in names and words. By that time I had already Lexigrammed the names of my parents and siblings.
Great Grandma was utterly thrilled!♥ ♥ ♥
She brought out of the attic old antique circa 1905 or so "ANAGRAM" game boards, and Scrabble game, and helped me take my interest in Lexigramming to a higher level.

I drove teachers bonkers because in school I would be doing Lexigramming rather than paying attention in classes. Oops! LOL!
Well I could not see the blackboard anyhow due to very bad eyesight.

By time I was 7 years old in 1961,
and a very sickly child, whom they thought would die before puberty,
and with extremely poor eyesight...
well I had plenty of time to Lexigram.
I was dreaming them, creating them in my dreams!
I usually did and still have
paper and pencil, or pen nearby to jot down my Lexigrams that came and still continue to come in dreams.
And a voice recorder nowadays.
So is it no wonder that;
♥ ♥ ♥ ERROR FREE LEXIGRAMMING IS MY SERIOUS PASSION!

I didn't even know about Star Signs, or Linda's interest in them until I acquired a computer, got internet access, and joined LindaLand in March of 2005.

That's right folks!
I was then a total computer newbie, who had just gotten a computer, and it was my first time on the internet also in that March of 2005!

Then when some folks here saw my Lexigrams they began accusing me of using generators!
I was like..
"huh? What is a generator?"

I'd been Lexigramming nearly 45 years to date, by that time,
without having ever been on a computer;
so was not using a computer program to Lexigram.

Even since having had a few strokes, which have affected my concentration, and vision acuity, I still do them by hand,
using my mind and yes,
old hard copy real printed on paper bound dictionaries and thesauri;
and only consult a generated list if I want to find words that are uncommon/archaic,
and or not in my personal mental vocabulary.
I still dream about and create Lexigrams whilst asleep,
and write down phrases which come to me in dreams,
on a note pad always kept by my bed.
I keep note pads in the bathroom to spontaneously write down Lexigram phrases as they come to me and use tape recorders also.
I finally got myself a digital recorder so that when when it is dark for any reason,
lights out, and or my eyes are glitching,
or I am in bed due to my disabilities acting up;
I can still note the Lexigram phrases that come to me.

(in addition to wonky eyes, I get total black blindness episodes; but fortunately usually just partial blindness episodes from time to time)

I have been Lexigramming and Anagramming for over 5 decades, over 1/2 a century to date.
***Update:
2017 marks 57 years so far***

I learned much from my great grandparents. Many new and other ways have come to my attention since then.
However the way I was taught,
is the easiest
and most logical,
and the only error free,
no cheating way I have yet encountered to date.
Lexigramming is also a very ancient art, or form of divination and secret coding,
going back at least a couple thousand years.
Many games of Anagramming using vintage early 1900s letter tiles and boards were a part of my childhood in the 1950s and 1960s. Scrabble was a later passion as the old Anagram games wore out from frequent use.
Boggle followed.
My partner is as passionate as I am about the art of and yes, the science and even mystery of Lexigramming and Anagramming.
He learned of them at a very young age from his grandmother, and has been doing them for over 3 1/2 decades.
So betwixt us, there is over 85 years Lexigramming and Anagramming experience.
________________________________________
***Update:
2017 marks about 95 years experience so far
between my husband and I.
In late 2019 we will have 100 YEARS COMBINED EXPERIENCE LEXIGRAMMING BETWIXT US!
AN ENTIRE CENTURY!***

I wonder if we will reach 200 years Lexigramming experience betwixt us?
It is possible!

_____________________________________
I have also in addition to Lexigramming;
have been reading dictionaries etc., for pleasure for over 57 years to date!
(as of 2017).


I have more Lexigramming experiences to tell,
so to be continued.

I always say "error free" Lexigrams; but if the creation/Lexigramming attempt has any errors; then it is not an actual Lexigram but instead is a Lexigramming attempt.
***An actual Lexigram by virtue of being a Lexigram
is automatically error free.!***
