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: every time you ~ another fine mess ~ the usual suspects ~ Never know ~ Frankly, my dear ~ Heart skipped a beat, then stopped

Before we had Bug, I was really worried about what kind of world I was going to bring a baby into. For the longest time I said I did not want kids. It scared me to bring a baby into a crazy-crazy world. Every time you turn on the TV or the computer there is something bad happening somewhere. There's another fine mess somewhere. I KNOW that good happens, but good news doesn't sell as well as bad news.
When I did find out that I was pregnant, my heart skipped a beat, then stopped. My brain became flooded with all the thoughts of the scary world he was about to join. The usual suspects told me it would be okay and frankly my dear, they were right. Bug's amazing. He's hilarious, smart, and my joy. I hope that by him being in the world that he will help change the world. That his whole generation will help change this world.
