My Life's Villain #UseYourWords July 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:
scrumptious ~ villain ~ slowly ~ kaleidoscope ~ bathroom
They were submitted by: Dinosaur Superhero Mommy  (Thank you for such interesting and challenging words!!)


I don't know how it happened. 
It happened slowly.
Or maybe it happened quickly.
One moment I was living a simple life.
Walking around with a kaleidoscope worldview.
Suddenly I was the girl spending hours in the bathroom.
Beautifying myself.
Pampering myself.
Using scrumptious smelling lotions.
Wanting to look my best for you.
Going out on dates.
Making plans for the future. 
A future with you.
Oblivious to your true self.
The real you under the facades.
I wish I had always known the real you.
I wish I had been protected.
I wish my heart had never been broken. 
I wish I had never met you.
I wish my life story never included a villain.
I wish it never included you.

  3. I really liked this one! I've known a few villains like that myself years and years ago. This is my first time in the challenge and it is so fun seeing how all of these words are being used.

  5. I think we should all get one RESTART button, don't you? Wouldn't it be great to go back just once and change things?

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

I kinda hate you though.

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…
