Bells will ring

Bells will ring

October 24, 2017 Two Word Tuesday Writing Writing Prompts 10

Welcome to Two for Tuesday, where you are offered two similar, yet distinct, words to spark your imagination. One prompt will be an ordinary, oft used word. The other prompt will be a little more expressive, maybe even unfamiliar.

Each word will include a definition to help get you started.

“The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

What to do:

  1. Write in any genre – fiction, memoir, poetry, horror, mystery, fantasy, romance, YA – you get the idea.
  2. You must use one or both prompts in your story – any form, any tense, as long as it is grammatically correct. (For instance, if you’re given a noun, and can use it as an adjective by adding “ing,” or change it to an adverb with “ly,”  that is allowed.)
  3. Share the URL to your story in the comments OR, if you don’t have your own blog, share your story in the comments.
  4. Please keep your stories PG-13 or under, and be sparing with the swearing. This is a family-friendly kind of place. Please include trigger warnings where needed.

This week’s words are:

Knell and/or Toll

[noun] the sound of a bell; a single ring of a bell.

The deadline to submit a story is midnight Monday, CST (5 a.m. Sunday, GMT)

    I can’t leave comments on most blogs and forget pingbacks. I don’t know if you got this or not. I did leave a link it just doesn’t show up.

  2. Tessa says:

    It gave me a long error message, sat for a minute or so and then posted. Last time I got the error, but it wouldn’t post.

  3. Tessa says:

    The error message included “spam shield” several times. Right at this moment, I get the error and eventually it posts the message.

  4. Tessa says:

    Hmmm, now I can’t respond through the reader although that may be because I replied through here. I simply don’t know on whose end it is on. You are not the only site, but one of many lately.
