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?

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…

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).
