Do things always go the way you plan? In September 2010 – The Book Signing, I tell of a time when life did not quite go the way I wanted. I planned ahead so that everything would go smoothly – instead, it seemed like everything kept going wrong. I made it to my event, which was the important thing, but it seemed like everything else went wrong.
For this week’s prompt, write about a time when something didn’t work out the way you hoped. It can be something recent, or something that happened a long time ago. It doesn’t have to be a story about something that happened to you. If you want, you can make up a character and describe something he (or she) wants to do, and then show how it goes wrong. Make it as long or short as you want.
