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:      
**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!

  5. Absolutely loved the way you used the words - both ways. Thank you! It wasn't what I had in mind so better YET! :)

    1. I am so grateful you approve!!! Thank you so so much!!! The words brought my brain to life instantly!!! Great words!!! <3

  6. Oh Jules this is powerful. Definitely would like to see you expand on this.

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.

New Year, Same Me. #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to January's Blog with Friends post! I once again decided to join in, and give it my best shot. How does it work? A group of bloggers select a topic, and create a blog post based on that topic, and then join their posts together in a round-up. This month, we are all creating posts based on the topic of resolutions. The posts can include any number of things, from crafts and recipes, to informative writing, to fictional writing, and anything in between.

How do you feel about resolutions? Do you make them? Do you keep them? Do you skip them? I tend to make some, and I tend to do a decent job at keeping some of them. I tend to take a more relaxed view on them, and shoot more for goals than resolutions. I also do not let myself stress over them. I feel if it becomes stressful, that defeats the purpose.

Well, for 2018, I have decided to take them a bit more seriously. I have put some thought into it, and come up with some things I really want to accomplish, improve, or change i…

Saved by Angel Payne #BookReview

I recently read Angel Payne's latest release, and let me tell you, it was not a disappointment. I will start by saying, if you are not into BDSM themed books, than you may just want to skip this one. BDSM is woven throughout the story, and it may be hard to ignore.

Now, if you don't mind BDSM, military hotties, romance, suspense, and action... This is definitely a book you want to read right away. The plot is entertaining and well thought out. The characters are interesting and well developed. The ending is steamy hot, and qualified for a HEA status.

This book offers plenty of steaminess, lots of action and suspense, and just enough intrigue to keep you guessing. We work through the characters struggles, both with major events that happen, with their relationship with their inner selves, and with their relationship with each other. This book has something for everyone.

Now, if you maybe don't love BDSM, but you can tolerate it, I would recommend you give this book a try. I…
