OLWG #223- Con Motivo Del Cumpleaños De Sonya

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 you know what I always say, “Practice makes perfect.”

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



WHAM! Sonya swung the stick. A solid hit broke the pot hidden inside. Her friends screamed with glee, and Vero Mangos, Pico Gomas, Obleas and the like littered the ground.

Sonya pulled off her blindfold and jumped in the melee, laughing and collecting sweets.

That night, after all the “¡Feliz cumpleaños!” echoes had faded, Sonya unwrapped a lollipop and thought about what it meant to be six years old now. She smiled.


This week’s prompts are:

  1. outside Halifax
  2. no god worth worrying about
  3. selling truth

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

  1. Gee, 6 or 60 is there a difference. Where’s my sweets 😉

    OK I did some fun historical research. I couldn’t find everything I was looking for. But I found enough for: Hāliġfeax

  2. Whoa… check out the new look! Love the Shaw quote, too.
    What I love about this little story is the deep introspection of a six year-old. If there is one thing that never fails to make me shake my head are children who say, “…my whole life.” I think a person can only use the phrase, “I have always…” until they are maybe 40 years old. Then they can move on to “my whole life.”

  3. Sometimes when I’m not sure how to unite the prompts – I go fishing. As was the case for this story. My original thought took a left and fell to the shadows.

  4. Would it be ok if I linked to this post, not with a written text but a photograph? I mean one that encapsulates all 3 prompts, in fact it’s a scene I pictured in my mind when I saw this first, I just had to wait to see it in real life.
