Use Your Words February 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.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them. 

I’m using: remote control ~ mute ~ fast forward ~ rewind              
They were submitted by:     

As she entered the house she saw her brother watching TV. Even in the dome they have access to the outside world. He had the remote control in his hand and he muted the TV when she entered the room.

"You have to see this, Sis!" He exclaimed as he hit the Rewind button. What she saw made her stomach drop. She watched all the way through the news bulletin and once they went to commercial, her brother started to hit Fast Forward on the remote to catch up with live TV so they could see if there was any more on what was said. 

She couldn't believe it...they said that there was some type of law passed and there was a possibility that everyone inside the dome would have to evacuate. Something about funding for the dome project being cut off. She thought they were self-sufficient; that they paid with their goods to keep the dome going.

Her father was on the board for the Dome Committee and she couldn't wait for him to get home to find out what was really going on.
