Use Your Words- September 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. 

My words are:

formal ~ unique ~ cold ~ insatiable ~ ridiculous

She also thought about the fact that she never had a need to attend any formal affair in the dome. No school dances since they were all homeschooled, and no other special occasions that she could remember. 

She knew all of the boys, and wasn't interested in any of them. She might be a little young to be thinking about this, but it had been weighing on her for some time since she felt like she was stuck in the dome. She was looking for someone unique, but that had some of the same interested as she did. One of them being that she enjoyed the cold, especially the snowy days when she could feed her insatiable reading habit. However, with the temperature inside the dome being perfect, there were no good reasons to stay inside and read all day, especially when everyone was expected to contribute to their skills and time to the workings of the dome...

It was all ridiculous to be pondering. Yes, she felt trapped at times, but there was always an option of leaving the dome. They weren't actually trapped. If the others wanted to stay inside the dome and keep the project running, then she needed to do her best to help come up with a solution.


  1. Love that this story is still ongoing and captivating. Hope she ends up being part of the solution.

  2. No snowy days curled up in warm blanket and sweats to read?! That's torture!

  3. I agree with Karen it's terrific that it's been an ongoing story and you are telling it so brilliantly!

  4. I'm actually torn on this one. I'd love to see more of life under the dome, but I also think it would be awesome to see her become part of the rest of the world and try to assimilate to normal life. I cant wait to see what happens next.

  5. You always do an awesome job with your words and I am glad you got mine this month. Now we have to WAIT....

  6. Hmmmm. If the dome is truly sealed off (for all intents and purposes), it would create its own atmosphere. It's quite possible she could have rainy or snowy days in her future.

  7. The return of the turkey and the dome :)

  8. just love how you can use the words to keep adding to the story!!! Woinder what will happen now.
