When Harry meets Autumn : 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups Week #30

The prompt this week is  it wasn’t my fault.   I have to say I had a little trouble fitting this into the next chapter of Autumn’s Tale, that is why it has taken me until Friday to come up with something remotely readable.

 “I can provide you with the tools for change.”

“What” Autumn asked “if I don’t want to change?”

 “There’s  always room for improvement”

 “What’s Mother said?”

 “That doesn’t matter”

 “Yes, it does, you clearly have preconceived ideas”

“You have a supportive family who want you to have a successful life”

“So you hypnotize me to sort out my emotional problems?”

“Life coaching” Harry said “isn’t about being a therapist or counsellor.”

It wasn’t my fault they all decided to interfere.”

 “I can help you find the gap between where you are and where you want to be”

“Alright”  Autumn sighed   “explain how .”

As I say every week, please make a visit to Julia’s Place and read the interesting, clever and varied takes on it wasn’t my fault.   Why not join in, more and more people are entering the challenge each week?  All  you have to do is write a creative piece in 100 words plus the prompt.   Dare you – go for the challenge, it’s great fun.

  1. I love that you keep Autumn’s story going.


  2. Goodness – has our Autumn finally found someone she will listen to? Or is this just a bluff! Don’t totally trust you here!! (Or Autumn for that matter!)


    1. Tee Hee!!

      You have been busy with three short stories haven’t you? All are really great as usual.


  3. Great job! I love how you’re connecting your story through the prompts – clever! 🙂


  4. Fascinating how you use the weekly prompts to tell a longer tale. Creative!


  5. Well, this was well worth the wait. Well done for continuing the theme so effectively. I am so intrigued as to where this will go, Autumn is developing into an increasingly fascinating character. Already looking forward to the next part!


    1. So frustrating we have another week to wait for the next prompt!


  6. The #100WCGU had better continue for many years if we are going to get to the end of this novel. Very frustrating to have only 100 words each week when I want to read ahead quickly.


    1. When I get a story line from a prompt I want to expand on it, and the trouble I then have getting it back down to 100 words plus the prompt is a real tough one.


      1. I hear you on that, Ronnie! It is difficult to get it down to 100 words….great job on this one…
