Two Shoes Tuesday Prompts for August 13th

 Two Shoes Tuesday is just a few days away!  There are now TWO word prompts each week... you can use whichever one inspires you. You are not required to use them both. You do not have to include the word in your post, but please use it as your theme.  You are welcome to write a post for each prompt word, if you like.

Since the intention is for this to be a CREATIVE WRITING effort, your contribution must be in the form of an original poem, essay, or short story (fiction or non-fiction), and it must be a new piece - not something drawn from your other writings or archives. Posts unrelated to either word prompt will be deleted from the Mr. Linky list.

I post an announcement with the writing prompts for the coming week on Saturday mornings, this gives you a little time to think about what you'd like to write and get it done! The upcoming prompt will also be posted on the Two Shoes Tuesday tab at the top of my blog for easy reference. 

The official Two Shoes Tuesday post with the Mr. Linky will appear shortly after 12 AM Central Time on Tuesday mornings.  You are free to add your link anytime through the following Saturday night, it does not have to be done on Tuesday.  I'm looking forward to reading what you share!

Your choice of word prompts for Tuesday, August 13th are: 
 box  or  dark
I hope you'll join us!


  1. Box or dark?? I need to think on that. I'm hoping to try this.

    1. You can do this Rae! Start asking yourself questions, like...

      What kind of box? What's inside it? Where is it? Who does it belong to? What is dark? Is her hair dark? Is it dark outside? Is it a time of darkness in his life? What happens in the dark?

      See, then when you hit on the question that appeals to you, write about your answer, and bingo... you have a TST Post! :-))

  2. I'm thinking. And thinking.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

    1. I know you will come up with the perfect idea, Sandee! I Do so appreciate you stopping by to check out the new prompts each Saturday! You are a treasure!
