3WW CXCVIII

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 and read and comment on other contributors' work.

I’d like to take this opportunity to explain how I pick the three words.
Each week, I come across words, which I place on a Word document. Come Tuesday night, I look at the list, move words around, and somehow, three words come into focus that just sound right together.
Those three words get placed in a scheduled post and I go to bed. I don’t think about them until I get up and check to see that Blogger updated itself (anywhere between 2 and 4 a.m. Central Daylight Time). That way, I have no unfair advantage over the rest of the writers.
And here you go, three bright, shiny new words:


bait, jump, victim

here I thought it was all random, though it is sort of random - I think certain words just go together

i started my post with the idea that it would be a 69er. i've been working on 69ers lately as a personal exercise to help with editing but it turned into much more. still, i think it can be considered microfiction.
i really love this exercise and intend to keep coming back.

This is absolutely addicting. And I love how you choose (sort of!) the words.

My first 3WW. Enjoyed the exercise. I think I made an error in posting cause it shows an enty in the previous 3WW too.

kinda silly, but in honor of my brother :)

Rinkly Rimes said...

This week's words seemed to be in unison right from the start. Mine's brutal, I'm afraid.

Thomma Lyn said...

In case my link is wonky in Mr. Linky, here's mine. Cool, how you come up with the words!

Brilliant concept. I just couldn't stay away from writing a poem on your words ,though it's friday for me. Well all the best for further editions. :)

It seems the words come late sometimes. The picture is my favorite from our weekend at the beach!
