    This is very difficult combo of words. Made a muddle of it.


  5. thommyg Says:

    Interestingly enough, this started as an idea in the notebook late in the night. It took its own turn as it unfolded. And I am most grateful it did. See what you think:


    Also, pass along the 3WW fun to your friends and fellow bloggers. Let’s build on all this creativity.

    After a month’s hiatus, I’m back, kinda.

    This week’s contribution is a monologue by a Big Bad — I myself am not too sure who he is, but it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s that King Philliam I alluded to quite often over the two or three weeks of my previous period of active writing.

    Enjoy 🙂

    Thanks, Thom! These words took me in a quirky direction. Maligned

  21. Amarettogirl Says:

    Thanks Thom!
    I had trouble with the word ‘malign’ since I didn’t use it as a verb… But boy oh boy what a story those three little words inspired this past hour! It’s a little long I know, but hopefully it reads quickly! It’s entitled,

    Amberdine’s Pendulum

  22. susan Says:

    It’s been awhile since I posted a poem here. This is flash inspired.

  23. Hal Johnson Says:

    I thought I’d try to incorporate today’s words into Thom’s Fiction in 58 exercise. I may have been off more than I could chew.


  24. blisshappens Says:

    I cheated a little and used malignant… hope it doesn’t affect my grade.

    Thanks for reading and commenting. I am truly enjoying reading everyone’s take on these words!


  25. Mendur Says:

    I did two items today: a haiku as normal, and my first “American Sandwich”, assuming I did that correctly. Click my name to see them.

  26. ThomG Says:

    OK, I decided that I just couldn’t sell the anger in this young man. But mischief, yeah, I think it works better. See if you agree.


  27. Ann (bunnygirl) Says:

    This week’s installment on the werewolf strike story is a short one. Sorry about that. But I’ve got a good excuse. I’m busy with edits to Maelstrom tonight because…

    I have a publishing offer! If all goes as planned, it will be on store shelves in early 2010. It seems like a long way off, but I know the time will fly.

    So here’s the third installment on the werewolf story and I’ll probably be wrapping it up next week:

    Werewolf Strike (Part Three)

    Here’s a fiction by me.

    When old memories revive, sometimes they give pain…sometimes hope…

  29. Gillian Taber Says:

    Hmm, first post didn’t seem to go through! (Apologies if it goes through and I double post !)

    Ok, try again. New website for stories (http://mojosshorts.webnode.com/). Will check everyone out later.

  30. Mendur Says:

    Side note on the American Sandwich I wrote:
    Andy Sewina was the first to catch (and post) what I did with the words:
    oF LASHed cargo
    seeM ALIGNed against
    the CRYPT I Crossed

    Too subtle? I’ll try to use them the “right” way next time.

  31. Sriharsha Says:

    Oops m late I guess

  35. Lisa Says:

    Here’s mine for this week. I came closer to actual “creative writing” rather than essay writing, but it stressed me out. It may not seem much, but I had to stretch myself to face my fears of being creative.

    My humble offering

    came across your own posting, “3WW CXXXVI Three Word Wednesday”,
    do you mind in case I really employ many of ur concepts?
    I am grateful ,Chase
