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 past it to 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's words:

Cease; verb: Come to an end; bring ( a specified action) to an end.

Heat; noun: The quality of being hot, high temperature; hot weather conditions; a source of level of heat for cooking; a spicy quality to food; intensity of feeling, esp. of anger or excitement; a preliminary round in a race or contest; verb: Make or to become warm.

Nasty; adjective: Highly unpleasant, esp. to the senses; physically nauseating; (of a person or animal) behaving in an unpleasant or spiteful way; physically or mentally damaging or harmful; noun: An unpleasant or harmful person or thing.
