3WW #75


Welcome to the 75th edition of 3 Word Wednesday. I never imagined it would last this long. But it has. Unless I’m dreaming. Which would be weird–to be dreaming about blogging. Not that it would be the first time.

Anyway, last week was our biggest number of participants ever. Thank you all for playing and helping to keep 3WW interesting. I encourage you to read others’ entries if you have time. It’s fascinating to me how three little words can take people so many different places.

This week’s words are:

    Simon’s getting busier by the day, so he decides to take time off for a day trip. And what luck I had two of today’s words already in piece. So little editing needed.

  5. Clueless Cat Says:

    This is so perfect for everything I’ve been feeling lately, gave me just the right push and inspiration to write:

  21. TC Says:

    Those of you that have word verification on, I am not able to comment on. I have loaded and reloaded the pages to no avail. Not sure what is going on. I will try from my own computer tonight, but I’ve read everyone’s posts (so far) and cannot comment on those blogs.

  22. Corina Says:

    I’ve taken my Manic Monday post from Monday and built a post for today, called Late Night Thoughts. I hope you enjoy it.

    […] week’s challenge over at 3WW is to write something that uses these three words: Apology, Consider, and Distant. Here’s my […]

  28. Mad Kane Says:

    Thanks for another fun trio of words. It inspired this limerick: Rejected Apology.

  29. Richard Says:

    Well, I suppose this could be called “Fun with Poetry,” or maybe, “Fun with the Cosmos,” but, instead, is titled: A1687-zD1: there is no there there


  30. Linda Jacobs Says:

    The entry looks like a poem but, really it’s just a little whine. I so needed to get it off my chest. Sometimes writing about something is like a snake shedding its skin. I feel better already. Okay, I might have exaggerated just a wee bit, but, damn, it felt good!

    Thanks for these perfect words, Bone!

  39. Myrtle Beached Whale Says:

    This was a hard one to write. But this is the first image those three words conjured up. Don’t try to figure how my mind works.

  41. veens Says:

    I am so sorry. I want to delete my last message, that is the 2nd one from the top. I made a mistake.

    I am thankful to everyone who pointed this out to me, and to others who found the correct entry!!!
    This is my this prompt entry.

  42. Heather Says:

    Perfect for today

    Isn’t it interesting the prompts that simply flow from our “pens”? I loved this simple little lesson in life. Thank you.


  44. WriterKat Says:

    Our apologies

  45. Jane Says:

  47. ThomG Says:

    Thanks, Bone, for another three great words. I don’t know how all you guys do it on Wednesday; I’ve got to give a little thought to the words, roll them around on my tongue a bit, get their taste, meaning. Anyway, looking forward to a few days of reading.

    Ménage à trios, unintentional

  48. pia Says:

    I forgot to congratulate Bone on 75 3WW’s.

    Without 3WW I would have never known I could write fiction.

    Thanks again Bone–75 weeks and becoming bigger each week

  49. LittleWing Says:

    another week of fun exciting words… i’d agree with pia.. thank you bone for the weekly prompts….oh, my post…and the other posts have been great reads!!!


  50. Linda Says:

    Is it too late for one more? This was fun. Here are my two cents on your three words:

    I’m Sorry?

  52. The Phantom Says:

    I’ll let you decide if this was ingenious or just plain lazy but I decided to complete three of this week’s assignements in one poem. So here for your consideration are the Poefusion Friday 5 and 3WW in the ReadWritePoem requested Pantoum form.

    I very much enjoyed this form because it did help me pace the development of the sentiment expressed. Without the constraints, the revelation would probably have come too fast.

    On Being Perfect

    Her is my second 3WW effort. I really enjoyed last week and I am so happy I found this awesome 3WW world. This week’s piece is tiltled,
