Two Shoes Tuesday Prompts for Oct. 22nd

 Two Shoes Tuesday is just a few days away!  There are 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 link 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 link list will appear shortly after 12 AM Central Time on Tuesday mornings.  You are free to add your link anytime through the following Friday 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, October 22nd are: 
 sorrow or  surprise
I hope you'll join us!


  1. I'd rather have the surprise.

    Have a terrific day. :)

    1. Definitely the better option, Sandee! But then, if we never new sorrow, how could we truly appreciate times of joy?!

  2. I say this every week...but I want to do this one. I shall go work on it now. :)

    1. I would be delighted to have you join us this week, Carrie, looking forward to it!


Your comments are always appreciated... they make me smile! :-)
