Ha. I just made a mistake. Won’t be the first or last.
I just wrote a quick piece for Julia’s Place 100 Word Prompt
What is 100WCGU? Each week there is a prompt: a few connected words, a selection of individual words or a picture. You have 100 words in order to write a creative piece.
This week’s prompt is: (see this week’s prompt site by clicking here) … returning to the routine …
Except I saw in bold and blue ‘Can You Spare an Hour?’
So I wrote a story for that. Maybe I will be “returning to the routine” next week, but in the meanwhile if you can spare a few minutes – here is my take on a no good prompt of:
‘Can You Spare an Hour?’
The End of Capitalism
Standing on the corner, John Franklin, unemployed therapist because nobody could afford one anymore, tried to support his cold, tired frame.
Other men stood on the other corners. All of them were in trench coats; all looking tired and sooty.
They had a fire going in a barrel on the lot of the abandoned filling station. They took turns around it trying to stay warm.
They all wore signs.
“Will work for food.”
“No Job. Help.”
His was different.
Can you spare an hour?”
Most everyone smiled…some even stopped and said, hi.
