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.

Make Jules a Billionaire June 2016 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week twelve 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: You are put on the board of a charity of your choice. What is your cause and why is it important to you? It was submitted by the lovely Karen of Baking in a Tornado.
I would definitely love to be the head of the board on the Make Jules a Billionaire Charity. I would love to get a headstart on lots of fundraisers and really get things rolling. Jules (I) really need to be a billionaire already. I could do so many good things, if I were a billionaire. I could fund orphanages and animal shelters. I could supply villages around the world with clean water and mosquito nets. I could fund medical research for cancers and other horrible diseases. 
If only. If you are interested, let me know in the comments, and I will give yo…

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 “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).
