Walk This Way

Yesterday I found this gem in Terry Pratchett’s Maskerade

“He had a unique stride: it looked as though his body were being dragged forward and his legs had to flail around underneath it, landing wherever they could find room. It wasn’t so much a walk as a collapse, indefinitely postponed.”

Now I cannot get the image out of my head…

So I decided to share.

You can thank me later.

PROMPT: Does your main character lumber, saunter, amble, or galumph? Whatever his or her method of movement, take a walk on the wild side and “Pratchettize” it today.


  1. Terry Pratchett is brilliant. I just started reading "Dodger" yesterday and felt like throwing in the towel (as far as my own writing was concerned) just after reading the first paragraph.

    1. I will NOT allow you to throw in the towel! Be inspired! He's part of OUR tribe, after all. Write on, Faith, write on!
