3WW CCLIX

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 below). 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: 

Dull; adjective: Lacking interest or excitement; lacking brightness, vividness, or sheen; (of a person) slow to understand; stupid; verb: Make or become dull or less intense.

Race; noun: A competition between runners, horses, vehicles, boats, etc., to see which is the fastest in covering a set course; each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics; verb: Compete with another or others to see who is fastest at covering a set course or achieving an objective; move or progress swiftly or at full speed.

Yawn; verb: involuntarily open one's mouth wide and inhale deeply due to tiredness or boredom; noun: A reflex act of opening one's mouth wide and inhaling deeply due to tiredness or boredom.

Sorry, I scrolled down too far and accidentally entered this post on the last centus. I don't think it'll matter though. So, entered it again on this, the correct one :)

Thank YOU, for organising it for us to take part in.

Interesting words - I hope that I've written something that's exciting rather than dull!

Check out the newest episode in my serial story, Taking Liberty. Nothing huge in the showdown department, but some motives are shown.

I liked the words this week! I kept yawning every time I read the word 'yawn' Oops!

Haven't been around in a while...a bit too fed up to write, I think, and cautious to not put that out there. Foolish when any emotion can be used as a creative outlet. Pop round...
