Hello Friday fictioneers! This week we’re taking inspiration from a song title. The idea is to pick one and use it as the title of your story.
If you’ve got an MP3 player or a music streaming app, you could set it to random shuffle and use the first song title that comes up. Or close your eyes and pick a CD (or tape*, or LP) from your collection.
Alternatively, here’s a selection to choose from:
- The New Pollution
- Devil’s Haircut
- All About That Bass
- Bad Valentine
- Particle Man
- Climbing Up the Walls
- The Obvious Child
- The Weeping Song
- Enter Sandman
- Blacklight Horses
Extra challenge level: write a drabble. That’s a story of exactly 100 words, including the title.
This is another game that can work well for groups. Think up song titles and put them in a hat, and then pick at random.
Have fun, and let the music move you!
