3WW CCXL

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). 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's words:

Brandish; verb: Wave of flourish something, especially a weapon, as a threat or in anger or excitement.

Forbid; verb: Order someone not to do something; refuse entry to a place of area; make something impossible or to prevent.

Manage; verb: To be in charge of; succeed in surviving or in attaining one’s aims, especially against heavy odds.

Used all three words, turned out to be a morbid poem. :)

A gift - a flash story.

Posting my link here, since me and Mr. Linky don't get along so well. I'm not good at poetry, but felt like rhyming today.

Very nice Madeline.

Man, I dunno about this one, but I posted it anyway. It's been a while since I last saw R&J performed, or even read it.

This was going to be a story about whales. Never ceases to amaze me how the story writes itself.

Peter Dudley said...

Only one haiku today, but also a challenge posted. Drop by, and I hope you'll play along!

I think a lot of us were on the same track this week.

Last night when I linked, I was #66 or #67 (I forget which). This morning, my link was gone and now I'm #44. I hope I was just imagining things and we didn't lose a lot of links.

sorry for accidentally having two links.. you may kick the first one off if you would like to.. I tried to do it myself but couldn't find a way to remove it.. It is not about three words.. I apologize.. Have a great day!

Well, this is just great. Blogger vanished my posted story from my blog! I know it was there, because I had comments on it. I see my comment posted here yesterday is gone, too. It was #18. I'm now #12. I hope Blogger gets its act together soon.

ThomG said...

Blogger says it'll get the missing posts back up soon (I hope, my 3WW is gone as well). IT's been bad since I tried to auto-post 3WW.

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

Yay, the posts are back! The comments didn't come with them, but I guess we can't have everything.

My 3WW is the first poem, haiku; the second is actually what happened the first day we moved into our new apartment! Twofer... Wednesday. Amy
