3WW Week No. 484

As you well know, 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.

And now for a serious question - has 3WW run its course? We're nine years into this and participation is diminishing. Should I continue to offer up words? Please let me know by emailing me at tgabrukiewicz(at)gmail(dot)com.

has it been 9 years? I'm sorry to say I have not been participating as often. as much as I want it to continue just for my own reasons, I think whether to continue to run 3ww is really up to you mr. thom g, the sole person running this gig. I guess as with most things, sometimes it must end.

I hope you have a lovely day.

You can't quit now: I just got back!

Seriously: I know from running Totally Optional Prompts (years ago) that there's a limit to all things. Nine years is a damned good run. Like Medhini, I have benefited a lot from participating and I will miss it if it goes... but the decision's yours.

All best,

I have loved the challenge of making a haiku - 17 syllables out of 3 off the wall words. I participate when I can. Would miss it, but it is your choice certainly.
