3WW CCLXIV


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.


Diligent; adjective: Having or showing care and conscientiousness in one's work or duties.

Nurture; verb: Care for and encourage the growth or development of; cherish; noun: the process of caring for and encouraging the growth or development of someone or something.

This is my first three word experience! I thought it would be a lot harder. I'm looking forward to seeing how others used them. :)
