Coming Soon: A Song from My Story, a Story for My SongbyLiterotica©
Do you remember a special song from your first school dance? The song on the car radio when you finally got to first base? The music playing when you lost your virginity? A standout song from the playlist for your road trip to spring break with someone that made the trip memorable? The music playing when you first realized you were in love? The first song you danced to as husband and wife? Music often plays a central role in our lives and our most significant life events.
Now, can you take that song and tell us a story that makes us feel what that song means to you?
Welcome to the
Here's more from the creator and organizer of this event carrteun:
The challenge is to write an homage to music somehow important to you. Write a story inspired by a song, an album or CD, or any piece of music from your life. Perhaps it’s just a favorite tune that suggests a story idea. Music from an important or special moment. A song associated with an old friend you’ve not seen in years. Or even a tune that brings back a memory that makes you change the station the second you hear it. Odds are there’s music for it. Use it to to create something new and unique.
This is a challenge, not a contest. You may garner some fame, or maybe become infamous. But you won’t pad your bank account. Your story may, and probably will, get graded by some readers. But the stories won’t be ranked. There will be no challenge losers. The winners will be the readers that get to enjoy what you’ve created..
