3WW CCLXXXV


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:

Beat; verb: Strike (a person or an animal) repeatedly and violently so as to hurt or injure them, usually with an implement such as a club or whip; strike (an object) repeatedly so as to make a noise; defeat (someone) in a game, competition, election, or commercial venture; succeed in getting somewhere ahead of (someone); (of the heart) pulsate; noun: A main accent or rhythmic unit in music or poetry; a brief pause or moment of hesitation, typically one lasting a specified length.

Pressure; noun: The continuous physical force exerted on or against an object by something in contact with it; the use of persuasion, influence, or intimidation to make someone do something; verb: Attempt to persuade or coerce (someone) into doing something.

Substance; noun: A particular kind of matter with uniform properties; the real physical matter of which a person or thing consists and which has a tangible, solid presence; the quality of being important, valid, or significant.

I'm only a day late, and Mr. Linky is already gone. You're a tough master ThomG. I shamelessly submit Shame.

I used the words in my journal entry and then in my poem. Thank you so much for the prompt.
