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 paste 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:
Baffle; verb: Totally bewilder or perplex; restrain or regulate (a fluid, sound, etc.); noun: A device used to restrain the flow of a fluid, gas, or loose material or to prevent the spreading of sound or light in a particular direction.
Elegant; adjective: Pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner.
Negate; verb: Nullify; make ineffective; deny the existence of (something).
