It was May of 2017 that OLWG was introduced to the world. Help me celebrate five years of prompts.
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.
Walter turned in his seat and watched Marilyn as she sashayed to the back of the theatre
Her hips swaying side to side
Unconsciously, he rose and followed her as if attached by a string,
and stood behind her at the concession stand like a dutiful puppy.
Of course, she noticed him.
It amused her
Marilyn decided to catch the eye of Walter – it was time now
She walked provocatively up the aisle and without looking
She felt him rise from his seat to follow
Subdued, like a turd on a leash – she laughed.
He was enamoured
It was only a matter of time.
This week’s prompts are:
- bellyful of gin
- remember what it feels like to fall
- death comes like dawn
You can start writing whenever you want, just write, get the words down – and have fun!

Two persspectives. The Marked and the femme fatale!
I did a little smoosh with a new poetic form: Love in the Dark
