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:
- Write in any genre – fiction, memoir, poetry, horror, mystery, fantasy, romance, YA – you get the idea.
- 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.)
- Share the URL to your story in the comments OR, if you don???t have your own blog, share??your story in the comments.
- 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:
Benevolence and/or Goodwill
[noun]the quality of being well meaning; friendly, helpful, or cooperative feelings or attitude.
The deadline to submit a story is midnight Monday, CST (5 a.m. Sunday, GMT)
