OLWG #40- Exelauno

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The work below is practice and practice makes perfect.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.

Today is March Fourth – Exelauno Day.

It’s just another day of the year. It’s just a date; a square on the calendar, a place to write the details of your doctor’s appointment or your dinner date. It’s a holiday, a holiday where you work towards the achievement of your dreams. It’s a day to make an effort or to take a risk. It’s a day to refuse to let excuses come between you and your goals. It’s a day to do something that makes you happy.

On March Fourth (March 4th), I try to make a special effort to improve my life, improve myself and “March Forth” toward my dreams and highest aspirations.

It’s called Exelauno Day because “exelauno” is an ancient Greek verb that means “to march forth,” at least that’s what I’ve been told, and if it’s not true…

…well it should be true.

So this Exelauno Day; I’m asking you to take a risk. Write something and use the prompts you’ll find at the bottom of this post. It’ll make you happy. It’ll make me happy too!

Thanks guys!

Only gonna give you a single prompt this week:

  1. least common denominator

Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!
Write something
Ready, Set, Go – you have 25 minutes, but if that is not possible, take as long as you need.

Have fun

  1. Thank you for this exposition on Exelauno Day. I pledge to ‘march forth’ next year, as I clearly missed it this one 🙂

  2. You’ve simply been marching to your own drummer. I enjoy reading about your nonconforming schedule issues, and I always applaud your ability to get done the things you want to get done!


  3. I need my drummer to beat louder and faster, but then I might just strangle him/ her. Glad you enjoy reading my moans and groans 🙂

  4. Kind of like to “Sally Forth” … Hmmm… I came up with a different meaning in Google translate. I like your version better. If English words can have multiple meanings I guess other languages can too.
    Snails pace… I go with the flow of the prompts: #7 Decedents

  5. Well if it isn’t a holiday, it sounds like it should be. But then I have to wonder how the retail industry would take to a holiday that didn’t involve spending money…..
