Writing Prompt… #5?

Think about a terrible day you had.  One that went down in the books for you as just a shit day.  Why was it so bad?  Think about the turning point when you knew the day was shot.  Was it in the morning?  Late in the day?  What season was it?  Where were you?  What made it bad? (someone dying, a plate falling on your foot, etc)


Use the details of that day to create a poem or piece of fiction.  Use details of what you were wearing, where you were, events that happened, and recreate an alternate world.  A different story out of your very specifics.  Use the turning point as your title (e.g. White Plate Falling, Mother Passes, Cold Coffee)  and do not mention it in the piece at all.
