OLWG #58- Meandering

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The work below was written only for practice, because practice is what makes perfect.

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

She leaned back on the barstool and craned her neck to watch him leave again. She wasn’t too worried – he’d be back. He always came back, and she loved to watch him walk away.


Inmate #147322 had spent years planning this. Now that the time was right, he wasn’t sure if he really wanted to go.


She picked up the pen and signed his name at the bottom of the cheque, just the way that she’d practiced. She reckoned that by the time he figured it out, she’d be in Montevideo; la buena vida.


Doc folded his cards and laid them on the table, covering ’em with his hand. He held a full house; Kings over sevens. “Are you playing cards, kid?” he asked, “Or you just playin’ with your pecker?”


He thought he needed a minder; and he may have been right. But he didn’t want a minder, he wanted someone to drink with. This wasn’t really made clear during the interview process.


Darla used the knife to divide the candy bar into three pieces. She took the biggest then pushed the plate over for the others to take theirs.

This week’s prompts are:

  1. a young guy with a bad haircut
  2. did you really think it through
  3. put that away

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

  2. You know, as I hit the publish button I was thinking that these would make good openings for stories. A film is a story done in another medium.
