Prompts

OLWG #206- Phoenician Wine

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.



Sometimes I can see into the future,

just a few minutes into the future,

but often that’s enough. Take yesterday,

for example, when I shoulda been

at home writing a story for the OLWG.

I flew from ABQ to SDF. First Class

Met Ali at the airport. Taxi to the track.

Where men posed with Women in conspicuous hats.

Excitement hung in the air like static

waiting for a conductor to get close.

Close enough to spark.

I hung by the window. I was here on

business. Then ¡SNAP!

My money was on Medina Spirit.



This week’s prompts are:

  1. I don’t want to
  2. a town with no future
  3. elegant or crude

You can start writing whenever you want, just write, get the words down – and have fun!

  1. Just like the tagline says! You have the knack to make 1st person read like a memoir; read as an actual event witnessed, regardless the format.

  2. You make it up but it is someone else’s reality. Last month – hubby still not wanting to fly commercial, had an emergency business call and got to ride a private company jet!!
    No booze though. I didn’t get to go along. But one of his bosses did. Hey when you’re in demand and good at what you do. But he’s getting tired of the bull shift. 😉

    While he golfs… I play in my own way. Stuck in haiku practice (but it could be a series?):
    apprehensive apparitions?

    (PS Look forward to your ‘pure haiku’ entry.)
