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:
Dependence; noun: The state of relying on or being controlled by someone or something else; reliance on someone or something for financial support; addiction to drink or drugs.
Kept; past and past participle of keep.
Rumple; verb: Give a creased, ruffled, or disheveled appearance to; noun: An untidy state.
