The Kids From Yesterday by MCR.
Thanks so much for all the positive feedback on this idea, I’m so glad people are enthusiastic about it- I feel really psyched for it now! So, just to make things clearer, this is what this is all about;
1. I’ll post a song for you guys to be inspired by each week/fortnight. The song’s genre, artist and subject will be as varied as possible, so it will appeal to everyone’s inspiration and music taste. You don’t have to like the music in the same way you might normally for it to inspire you.
2. You’ll have the remaining week/fortnight to post a piece of creative writing inspired by the song (I’ll let you know whether it’ll be a week or a fortnight at the time, don’t worry).
3. Once you’re ready to post your piece of writing, say somewhere in the title or summary: ‘[For Music and Words]’, so it’s easy for people to find. It’d also be great if you could post a note at the start of your story/poem, whatever, saying which song it was you’re inspired by. If you want, you can use the song title/lyrics as the title, but you don’t have to- it’s totally up to you.
4. Review the chapter holding the song you’ve been inspired by, with a link to your song/poem/story/essay and I’ll come read, rate and review it- hopefully other readers will too. I’ll also put links to all the pieces of writing you’ve done in the next chapter, along with my review. If you’d like constructive criticism, let me know and I’m happy to give it, but I don’t want to make this about being grammar/spelling perfect or anything.
Hope that’s clear enough…Any questions or songs you’d like to be used, feel free to drop me an email; email@example.com
So, without further ado, the first song is…
The Kids From Yesterday by My Chemical Romance- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7H8so9oU0I
I thought I’d start with an MCR song seeing as it is for the MCR category, but it’ll be a different artist every week, and like I said, if you have a song you’d like to be done, send me an email and I’ll try and use it (:
So…Get writing, guys! If you’re feeling lost, drop me an email or check out the previous note on this.
Well…Enjoy, be inspired, and drop a review when you’re done! I’m gunna give it a shot too xD
Au Revoir, lovelies!
P.S. I'm gunna re-name this 'Music and Words', just so you guys know what it is (:
