We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Challenge me: (yes i do hope for replies/comments lol)

So, CHALLENGE ME! I just remembered an activity we did a couple of times in school before... we had to pick a song or someone had to pick a song for us, and then we try to make a story out of it.

SO yeah, challenge me to make a story out of ANY song at all. if you could link me to the lyrics that would be great (esp. if it is an old song or a not-so popular song). If you choose to make it extra challenging, choose a genre and/or set a deadline!

Edit: i am accepting the 1st challenge and will be working on it before accepting others... keep it coming though, i'll try to do all of them as soon as i can. :)

Edit: excerpts from the first story (barely finished the first draft though):

She laid flat on her bed staring blankly at the ceiling. Breathing slowly. Calmly. She let a sigh out as [...]Another sigh. Then she quickly got up from her bed, and out of the door. Slamming it shut as she raised out her apartment. Walking aggressively, then tentatively. Uncertain, but determined to try to escape her thoughts. She tried adjusting her pace; [...]

"[...] Sarah--well she was a normal simple shy and socially awkward boyish girl . Except she was not chosen to be the protagonist in Chris’ love story. She wasn’t chosen to have the happy ending with him.

"She walked. Briskly this time. Still tentative, but trying to go as fast as she could drag her feet. It took her this long to realize she had to let go. [...]"
