WEEK OF APRIL 13
Two words are offered each week for consideration. Each word has a similar definition, but one is more expressive. You can pick either word, or both, to use in your story.
“The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
1. Go write something using the prompt - fiction, poetry, thrillers, fantasy, romance, personal memoir… anything.
2. Use either prompt, in any tense or form, as long as it’s grammatically correct.
3. Try to keep your missive to 500 words or less, but don’t worry too much about length, we won’t count.
4. Come back here to link up in the comment section below.
5. Deadline to enter Saturday, midnight CST (5 a.m. Sunday GMT).
6. Only one entry per person.
Reticent and/or Shy:
[adj] not revealing one's thoughts or feelings readily
If you have a suggestion for a prompt, please leave your word pair in the comments.
If you missed reading last week's stories with "Patois" and/or "Dialect:"
Tara, “Honeyed air”
Nonamedufus, “Where Are You Detective Diago”
Katy, “The Company You Keep”
Melissa, “Three down, one to go”
Joe, “Exit: The Unanswered Question of Timothy”
Kenneth, “Just Another Day at the Job”
Have fun writing!
