3WW CCXXV

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.
As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

But I invite everyone to check back often to read and comment on other contributions. This is, after all, a community for writers who clamor for feedback.

This week, something a little different. I give you three slang words, along with their meanings. I know this might be rough on the poets, but if you've never tried prose, this could be your chance to change things up:

conniption; noun: a bad tantrum. One has a conniption or conniption fit.

janky; adjective: broken or functioning poorly or improperly; messed up.

scooch; verb: to move over, or to scoot.

BLAST! No character in this story can say those words without ruining the tension. Looks like the Omega series will have to take a break this week.

This is either the finest limerick I've ever done with a Three Words, or the worst.

Thom - be warned. I mention you specifically in the poem.

Challenging, to say the least. Janky? Really??

Not Forgotten. I'll come back when Mr. Linky is up.

At first I thought it was "Jinkies" like Velma always says in Scooby Doo. That's a new word for me.

And yes, today there's a blizzard, and I'm at work still.

Scooch over, moon - a flash love story.

Unfamiliar words. It took me a long time to figure out a way to use them.

I wish I had more time to tarry. I am fresh back to work and am buried under production pressure, putting the design package together to install a new laminator to lay down dough for the Nabisco Premium baking line.

My Wednesday was filled with grandson fun. This one waited until today!

Christina said...

I was so blank yesterday, had to write during lunch at work today, then come home and post it. By the way the word scooch threw me off because it happens to be our sons nickname. Nice challenge.

A piece of flash fiction instead of poetry. It's been awhile.

Nico said...

First time posting here--pretty shy about putting my thoughts out for public reading. I'm a lazy writer, so I appreciate the weekly prompts. I read many of the offerings this week, and everyone did fine work on such a tricky prompt!

Peace, Nico

I knew exactly what to write about when read the words.
