Writing Prompts

Sing it

headphones

 

Take a line from your favorite song and incorporate it into a short story. Let the song’s style set the rhythm of your narrative. Dance to the song or sing it out loud (and with feeling) to get a sense of its spirit and rhythm.

Can’t pick a favorite? Try these:
“Every time when I look in the mirror.”
– Aerosmith,
Dream On


“I know they say you can’t go home again.”
– Miranda Lambert,
The House That Built Me


“The road leads back to you.”
– Ray Charles,
Georgia On My Mind


“And your friends, baby/They treat you like a guest.”
– Jefferson Airplane,
Somebody To Love


“I never sleep, wild like Los Angeles.”
– Pitbull,
International Love
