Writing Prompt: Failure

Have you ever failed any anything? We sometimes forget that with failure comes unique opportunities to learn and observe our reactions (or the reactions of others). It can be a job interview, a failed relationship, a bad date, a wardrobe malfunction, a failed exam, a botched driving test or a missed opportunity. Think about times when you have failed. What happened? What did you learn from the experience and how did you react? What did you feel and how did that failure affect your life or the lives of others? With failure comes a wealth of material for story telling. Write some examples of either personal or witnessed failure. Create a 300 word narrative describing the conflict, reactions and resolutions.
