3WW CCXXVI

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). 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.

And no, not slang this week.

Abrasive; noun: Any material or substance used for grinding, polishing, etc., as emery, pumice, or sandpaper; adjective: Tending to abrade; causing abrasion; abrading or tending to annoy or cause ill will; overly aggressive.

Handful; noun, plural: the quantity or amount that the hand can hold; a small amount, number, or quantity; or informal, a person or thing that is as much as one can manage or control.

Loss; noun, many uses including detriment, disadvantage, or deprivation from failure to keep, have, or get; the state of being deprived of or of being without something that one has had; or the accidental or inadvertent losing of something dropped, misplaced, stolen, etc.

This is cathartic for me, the more I write the more I want to evolve away from the loss I feel and move deeper into my imagination

Much easier than last week! Thank you for taking it easy on us. :)

Part 14 of Taking Liberty picks up in the nurse's office, where Elizabeth is asked a difficult question to answer.

These words led me to an interesting experiment, though the results might not be very readable. Oh well, nothing ventured...

Late but still here. Please don't call me "the late Mr Dudley."
