I was reading through some old challenge pieces, and I had an idea for a new type of word war!

Also, people create impressive things on YouTube. (Like the infamous “Why Is The Rum Gone,” heretofore to be called The-Remix-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named.)

I bring you: the Music Writing Challenge!

Basically, the idea is to write a short story in the space of one song. If you’re unfamiliar with the song, you can listen to it once–listening actively–I mean no multitasking! No Facebooking, no looking at stuff on Amazon, just listening to the music–not necessarily even watching the music video. Just listening. And then, when you’re done, you open a blank Word document, start up the music, and write to it. When the music is done, stop writing. If you absolutely MUST continue your story, make sure to put a line or a note or a page break or SOMETHING there to denote that this part was not written as a part of the challenge.

Be sure to post your completed story (or story fragment) on your blog and link me back to it! I’d love to read them all 😀

Our first challenge will be written around the Skillet song “Hero.”

I plan on posting my own addition to the Challenge shortly.

Good luck!
