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:
Amateur; noun: A person who engages in a pursuit, esp. a sport, on an unpaid basis; a person considered contemptibly inept at a particular activity; adjective: Engaging or engaged in without payment; nonprofessional.
