Telescopic text

Oops! Should be one EYED cat.
Go to Telescopic Text. Click on Write.

Start with a simple sentence. Expand it, word by word, phrase by phrase to something gloriously twistedly complex.

See if you can create a story that grows from a simple sentence. Or keep changing the meaning of the sentence by adding words to what you have. Or just play to see where it takes you. :-)

To see a demo, you can play with Joe Davis's "I made tea."

There's a page with some Ideas to get you started and another on How to use the writing tools.

You'll need an account to save any Telescopic Texts you create. The feature to add your texts to the gallery seems not to be working. (The site hasn't been updated since 2011 so that's unlikely to be fixed. But creating a text still works fine.)
