Two Shoes Tuesday #19 - Earworm

Welcome to Two Shoes Tuesday... a place to share what we enjoy doing most... writing! Each week I provide a one-word writing prompt and invite you to share a short story, poem, essay, thought, or photo relating to that topic. You can add a link to your post anytime, there is no deadline.  Bear in mind that you are not required to use the actual word in your post, but please use it as the theme.

The writing prompt for January 8, 2013
(as suggested by Alex at Short Story Shuffle)
is "earworm"
(definition: a song or melody that keeps repeating in one's mind )

When you've finished your post, share it with us by adding a link in the Mr. Linky widget below. Please link directly to your Two Shoes Tuesday post, rather than just to your blog. Also, please provide a link on your post back to this one.

The only other request is that you read and comment on the other entries, at minimum the one before and after yours on the list.

I've made it easy to locate this post and our archives by including a tab for Two Shoes Tuesday at the top of my home page.

New: Beginning with TST #19 (incorporating another good suggestion from Alex) - Every other week (on odd-numbered TST weeks) the first person who adds a post link in the Two Shoes Tuesday Mr. Linky will be given the opportunity to choose the word prompt for the following week!

Feel free to email me at with any questions, or to submit suggestions for future word prompts.

Now let's get down to business... tell us about an "earworm"!


  1. I'm glad you gave the definition of earworm -- lol -- I was thinking something else when I first read and my response was.... eeewwwwwww.

    ok - so I've off and running but... will check out the challenge later -- I did like Fi's post today though! Really good.

  2. Josie... thanks for giving me a new word to learn! I love it....
    Happy tuesday!
