a place for zinesters - writers and readers
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!

"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. [...]"
