3WW Week No. 520

This is the 520th edition of Three Word Wednesday.

That's 10 years, folks. 

Or, 1,560 words that you have turned into poetry, fiction, non-fiction, stream of consciousness, opinion, observation and various other pieces.

When I took over for Bone eight years ago, I never thought we'd get to this milestone. And for weeks, I've toyed with the idea of making this the last 3WW post.

I've reached out to some of you, the old-timers, and you said you'd like me to continue. So, let's continue. For now. 

You know the drill: Each week I post three words. You write something using the words.

Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title and paste it to Mr. Linky below). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

(And if you want a hint as to when I post three new words, follow me on Twitter @tgabrukiewicz.)

I do invite everyone to check back often to read and comment on other contributions. This is, after all, a community for writers, poets and bloggers who clamor for your feedback. Share with friends. Tweet the love. Let us build this community.
