OLWG #197- Would You Recognize Her If You Saw Her Again?

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. Feel free to seize the prompts, twist them, form them, play with them as you will. All comers are welcome. The words below are just practice for me. I had a lot of fun writing them and, practice makes perfect.

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

“No, her hair was parted on the right side.”

“Yeah, just like I’ve drawn it here.”

“Oh, sorry, I guess I wasn’t clear; parted on her right side, not ours.”

“Hmm, that’s easy to fix.”

“Maybe it should be just a little bit curlier too. Not too curly but curlier than you have it now, and her nose wasn’t as big as you’ve got it. It was long and kinda sharp like you show there, but not that wide.”

“OK, I can work on that; would you hand me my gum eraser? It’s just there by the edge of the table.”

“You got the scar right, and her mouth – spot-on. She was grinning, almost as if she’d just told herself a joke that she had never heard before. The smile lit up her eyes. She was sorta a pretty girl.”

“How’s this then?”

“I think you captured her. It’s an uncanny likeness.”

“OK then, we’ll get this picture in circulation. Thank you for your help, sir.”

“Will you let me know when you catch her?”

“I don’t know, sir. I only do the sketches. You’ll need to speak with someone more directly involved in the investigation.”

“I’d like to speak to her when you catch her.”

“I can’t make any promises, sir.”

“Looking at your picture, I realize how pretty she is. I wonder if she’d agree to have a cup of coffee with me. Or maybe dinner, nothing fancy, you know. Maybe a Cobb Salad at the club. What do you think? Huh?”

This week’s prompts are:

  1. listen as the wind blows
  2. rollin’ boxcars
  3. I tend to break things occasionally

You can start writing whenever you want, just write – and have fun!

  1. Something about the word, “catch”, made me wonder if it were a dog you wrote about, except for the placement of the hair part and until the person started wondering if the bandita would agree to a date.

  2. An odd snippet. Was a crime committed? I would think the bandita would be more than miles away and not care a thing about Cobb Salad at all.

  3. I don’t think she’d be interested in a Cobb Salad either. The victim might be slightly delusional?


  4. But what a wonderfully bizarre character, right? The guy doesn’t care, except that he found her attractive and is obviously looking for love. So much so, in fact, that it is a singleness of mind. Pair that with his idea of what a pleasant first date would be! Who and what she is, beyond a beauty, is immaterial to him.
