    I’m glad I never got that way with alcohol. These days I don’t even go near it.
    I always wonder why some people become dependant on alcohol; it’s a thing I’ve never understood.
    That aside, your story is disturbingly true.

    Oh yes! You mean when one person starts a story and two or more people add different chapters and completely diverts it off somewhere else? I forgot about those. That would be fun if only we had one or two more budding writers.

    • That is fun, but that is not the exercise I am thinking of.

      • Can you offer a more elaborate explanation as to how the word salads worked? I can remember them in part, but am blurry on the details. Were they similar to the word challenges that I am setting?

        • Yes they were, he would give you words, and tell you to make a story. if you look at the two holy b’s batman and this one, you will see the b words are the same.
          You can either put them anywhere through the story, or you can do it in order, which is where you get the WTG award. There is one where I used all of the words and then did it…[Read more]

    Amazingly sharp and very witty – it made me smile whilst reading it.
    What was this particular challenge called? Was it set by Pastor Mike?
    The one thing I enjoyed above all else was the picture challenges that came round every now and then. If you scroll right down to the very beginning of this group, there is a picture challenge if you like the…[Read more]

    • Yes it was Pastor Mike, and in one on my flash drive says his name lol. He called these word challenges Word salads, and yes he I did respond to the picture ones. I do like the picture and will have to write one soon, I love word salads and wish I remembered the rest of the letters we earned when we wrote them in the right order!
      I miss him and i…[Read more]

    If you still have it on file, post it here.

    Scary! In that case I will want to know more. Maybe I’ll set a horror challenge with the letter L.

    Mwah ha ha harr!

    Ah! Believe it or not that name was in my top three. I do remember that username so I must remember you.

    Oh. . .and no problem with the Kremlin thingy, I have a habit of trying to probe people’s minds in the hope I can understand their inner musings. Your first blog/story in years?! It read ok to me, I look forward to reading more, and hope you…[Read more]

    A quick update for all participants in the Writer’s Lounge. Although I set challenges, members should be aware that any creative input they may have is not limited, or restricted solely to reacting to my set challenges. Anything creative in fictional writing may be posted here at any given time by any member. Thanks for reading.

  • What editing software did you use?

  • Jules posted a new activity comment 1 week, 5 days ago

    Well. . .apart from being an enjoyable read – describing one who has blossomed and found their own power-base, I remain unsure if I remember or know you. Remembering usernames are tricky and I struggle with all the names that I know to label you with one of them. So by way of not making myself look silly and, not wishing to overtax my tired old…[Read more]

    I have seen your post but am yet to read it. . .my kitchen is shouting at me to clean it. When I’m done I will read your story – but before I read it I will say thanks for supplying content; I think you’re the first person to actually submit a story for a year or so. . .so well done just for that.

    And no. . .I don’t remember who you are/were.

    “Not competed but participated in together.”

    I like that description more. 🙂

    Hello Amanda, and welcome to Thoughts.

    The fact that you mention ‘scribbles’ must mean that you were once a member of the old thoughts and took part in the writing challenges? What with one thing and another I’m afraid all that came to an abrupt end when ‘Thinkr’ took pride and place over thoughts after it closed, and most of the old…[Read more]

    The way I understand it is that the blog and group functions operate independently from one another. If you post on your blog it will only appear there and not simultaneously across any groups you have joined. And by the same token, if you post in a group it will only appear there. The ‘Activity’ page will show everything new happening across the…[Read more]

    And again. Yes, the Hairy Bikers are on Brit Box.

  • Hello lyn.barnes and welcome to Thoughts – or is that welcome back?

    The doors re-opened several months ago when Ben decided to bring the site back. It was totally unexpected and I think it’s fair to say that everyone here was surprised to wake up one morning to find that Thinkr had disappeared and Thoughts.com had rematerialised in its…[Read more]

    • Hello, do you know if there is access to scribbles and bits somewhere? I miss them.

    • Hello Amanda, and welcome to Thoughts.

      The fact that you mention ‘scribbles’ must mean that you were once a member of the old thoughts and took part in the writing challenges? What with one thing and another I’m afraid all that came to an abrupt end when ‘Thinkr’ took pride and place over thoughts after it closed, and most of the old thoughtsers didn’t like Thinkr and left for other adventures.

      I started a writing group on Thinkr https://thoughts.com/groups/writers-lounge/ I set simple weekly challenges in the hope that the writing spirit could be rekindled, but in truth it never did – mainly because there was not enough people on the site and certainly not enough who showed interest.

      Thoughts.com re-opened a few months back and all the groups and blogs which were already in place were carried over to the new version. You can join any group found under ‘Groups’ and there is one dedicated to poetry if that’s your thing.

      I could start a ‘scribbles’ challenge within my own group but it would need regular input to make it worth my while. I’m not adverse to re-kindling the old scribbles – in fact I would love it, but in order to thrive, a group needs people, lots of people, and right here and now the trickle of people, new and old, is very slow and most newcomers just want to write blogs which is fair enough.

    • We probably competed on the Word Salads, I was the one that always did them in order and got the WTG rewards, I forgot how he did that, I miss Pastor Mike.
      I signed up for Thinkr, but I didn’t write much. I have not written much creatively, because of work and school, but I have been seeing word salad over and over and happened to check out thoughts again.

    • Not competed but participated in together. <3

    • Me too, did you read my post, do you remember who I am?

      • I have seen your post but am yet to read it. . .my kitchen is shouting at me to clean it.

        And no. . .I don’t remember who you are/were.

        • I will see after you read it, I am trying to do notes, do homework, and I have to get on the bike and put in some miles for the Ride for Roswell sometime today, so I will let you read and then see if your memory is triggered. Have fun in that kitchen, I will see if I can find your response when I get some things done!
