Use Your Words January 2015

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.




My words are:
Bitter ~ watch ~ wild ~ stand ~ chat               
They were submitted by: http://batteredhope.blogspot.com      
**Thank you for such inspiring words!!**


Take 1:

I don't know if it makes me a bitter person, but my mind goes wild with jealousy, when I have to stand and watch you chat with other women.


Take 2:

I hate to stand by and watch you chat with other women.
It drives my mind wild with hurt and jealousy.
I guess you could call me bitter.
Maybe I am.
I cannot help it.
Not that long ago, it was me that held your attention.
I was the object of your affection.
I miss that. 
I miss you. 
I miss us.



Thank you for taking the time to read this! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Wow! Inspiring and intense words used so well by you. I am impressed that take one had every word contained in one sentence!

    1. Thank you! <3 The first thing that came to mind was that one sentence. I wanted to try to expand on it, so Take 2 came about. I still feel like I could/should do more. I feel and edit coming on.

  2. I can feel the pain in your words, especially take 2 which felt so poetic. I think you need to turn this into a full story.

    1. Thank you. I would love to expand on it. I feel like there is more there, but it is just below the surface. Definitely a possible edit in the future!

  3. It's an art to tell a story in very few words. You master it!
    PS: I hope it's fiction?

    1. Thank you very much. That compliment means a lot to me. It is fiction based loosely on experience. I am really not a jealous person by nature. I definitely did get the inspiration from real life though.

  4. Wow, using all the words in one sentence! Take 2 was great, though.

    1. Take 1 came to mind instantly. Take 2 took some thought. Thank you so much!

My words are: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

My words are: bat ~ environment ~ foreshadow ~ lonesome ~ oddly They were submitted by: http://theblogging911.com/blog
I am typing this on my new Chromebook. I got it dirt cheap on Amazon Prime Day. I am not trying to brag, but I am a fast typist, and make very few typos. However, In just these last few lines, I have made about a million typos. Change may be nice, but sometimes it takes a bit to get used to. Oy. So, please bear with me. Oddly, despite not liking change and fighting it as much as possible, I am actually excited about this change. Ho…

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.


My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy ofhttp://climaxedtheblog.blogspot.com (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
