Rules:Our second story contest is going to be a one-chapter short story like always. Except, Sarah had the brilliant idea of making your story based off a song. So we have to choose a song and you can base your story after that song. For example, what happens in the song(based in your interpretation) could be what happens in the story. Or one of the minor characters would say something like the singer says in his story, i dont know, its open to interpretation like i said. So any song ideas?
The contest ends the 23rd.

how bout we write a story off a song? like you can include the lyrics and interpret the song however you like. it just has to be based off what the song sings about

That's a great idea! Let's do that.. but first we should choose a song.

No, sorry, first we have to have a topic or something.

Mallory (malloryrose17) How about we all choose our own song...? I think that would be waaaaay more fun.

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
ya, that sounds pretty fun :)


message 7: by Zandy (new)

Zandy | 173 comments Mod
sure.. but shouldn't we have a little bit of guidelines? like what type of song or something?
(hey, i wouldn't want to choose a song and everyone did like the total opposite of songs, and I think i chose a really dumb song)

for guidlines we could could put like you have to include the lyrics in your story or something like that.


message 9: by Mallory (new)

Mallory (malloryrose17) Works for me!!! I call dibs on Love Story by Taylor Swift ;)


message 10: by Mallory (new)

Mallory (malloryrose17) Oh, I love that song!


message 11: by Mallory (new)

Mallory (malloryrose17) I don't know... you'd probably have to put the translation.


message 12: by Zandy (new)

Zandy | 173 comments Mod
yah, okay, you need to put the lyrics in and u can do any song.
if its in a different language, get it translated.
i think we should have more time for this contest, though.

haha nice french.
but that really means "i am dead" not i am finished. honestly, look it up


message 26: by Trish (new)

Trish Hm...how odd. I took French for five years through college and that's what we were told to say. And there's probably supposed to be some past participle thingy in there too, so it's probably incorrect anyway.


message 27: by Sarah, The Flying Monkey (new)

Sarah | 279 comments Mod
well google says it "I'm finished"


message 28: by Mallory (new)

Mallory (malloryrose17) J'ai fini means I'm finished :)


message 29: by Trish (new)

Dang it!
I wish I could've entered.....
I would've done Handlebars by Flobots. It's a pretty good song I guess. But I like how it sort of has a story wrote into it. It's really sad :(
