I’ve tried a few different writing prompt contests in the past. I took two of my favorite things and smushed them together this time: music and writing. So what are you waiting for? Take a stab at it, my friend. Let me know if you think this is fun and we can continue the jig. Let’s have some fun while becoming better writers. Cheers.
Step One: Listen to the song of the week. I recommend reading the lyrics while listening to the song. Let the song sink into you; this is your fuel.
Step 2: Using this week’s song as a primer for your brain, write an approx. 300 – 500 word short story inspired from the song. The following lyric must be in your story in a way that makes sense: “We can be heroes, if just for one day.”
3.) Post your work on your blog (with a link to the contest) and a link below for me and other readers to read.
Rules: Keep it PG/PG-13. Author reserves the right to not accept posts that do not follow the spirit of the contest, etc. Post entry by 11:59 EST Thursday May 28th. I’ll pick one (or more) entries that particularly stood out to me as creative, insightful and worthy of a thumbs up. Feel free to comment on what other writers wrote, keeping in mind the Golden Rule.
Here’s the song. Good luck and happy writing!
