Two Word Tuesday: Have you heard

Two Word Tuesday: Have you heard
March 13, 2018 2 Comments Two Word Tuesday, Writing Prompts Tara R

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:

Canard and/or Rumor

[noun] an unfounded rumor or story; a currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth.>

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

Tara R Tara Roberts (pronounced Tar-ah and with a southern drawl) lives and plays on the Florida Gulf Coast. A former print news and online media reporter, she now spends her days roaming the woods and beaches of the Panhandle talking to herself, penning eclectic fiction, and taking photographs. She can be found most days at “Thin spiral notebook” trying to quiet the voices in her head.

    Here’s my piece! I had a lot of fun writing this one. My thoughts during the writing were: I can imagine that this prompt could be given to 500 different writers and none of them would write the same piece. Thanks for the inspiration and enjoy.


It's YOUR write side, too! Let's hear it!
