OLWG #44- The Linesman

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The work below is a drabble, written for practice ’cause practice makes perfect.

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



Meanwhile, Clancy is sitting on the long stone steps that lead to the library. It’s the main branch, downtown. A book of poetry is balanced on his knees; a book from which his name has been omitted.

“Hello?” Donna says. There’s no reply. She shivers and terminates the call. When she drops the phone on the cushion, it rings again.

“Quit calling me Clancy,” she screams, “just quit!” This time she slides the phone under the cushion – hiding it.

Clancy hasn’t read the book, has yet to crack it open. The book’s overdue. There’s sure to be a fine.


This week’s prompts are:

  1. black or white
  2. use this
  3. bullshit

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. I was just reading Dear Abby this morning… Cell phones done have to be on all the time. Folks expect that when they text or call you that you reply right away. Which isn’t necessary. We can lead private lives.
