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.

Hey, make 3WW part of your NaNoWriMo plans! Tell your friends!

(And if you want a hint as to when I post three new words, follow me on Twitter at tgabrukiewicz.)

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:

Clench; verb: (With reference to the fingers or hand) close into a tight ball, esp. when feeling extreme anger; (with reference to the teeth) press or be pressed tightly together, esp. with anger or determination or so as to suppress a strong emotion; [with obj.] grasp (something) tightly, esp. with the hands or between the teeth; [no obj.] (of a muscular part of the body) tighten or contract sharply, esp. with strong emotion; noun: a contraction or tightening of part of the body.

Faint; adjective: (Of a sight, smell, or sound) barely perceptible, (of a hope, chance, or possibility) slight; remote; verb: Lose consciousness for a short time because of a temporarily insufficient supply of oxygen to the brain; noun: A sudden loss of consciousness.

Prod; verb: Poke (someone) with a finger, foot, or pointed object; stimulate or persuade (someone who is reluctant or slow) to do something; noun: A poke with a finger, foot, or pointed object; a pointed implement, typically one discharging an electric current and used as a goad.

Prodded by fatigue
I clenched the nearest armchair,
Trying not to faint.

Thanks for your words!

Thanks for the words. Would it hurt to get rid of word verification? It's really an unnecessary nuisance--very difficult to read. Thanks.

A childhood memory!

(I agree with Magical Mystical Teacher about word verification. Makes life difficult for all.)
