Short Story Book Project Starting Now


That apology is for the persons who hated the song prompts in July. I’d planned to use song prompts for one month just to see what happened for me as a writer. I had such fun and created such a diverse collection of stories from the July song prompts, that I decided to continue song prompts into the coming months until I have a collection of 100 shorties. Then I am going to e-publish the collection.

That said, here’s the first song prompt for August–“The Good Life” by Three Days Grace. Lyrics can be found at the link.


What I have discovered is that using a diversity of songs as prompts inspires a diversity of stories. What an eclectic collection July’s prompts inspired!

My next trick will be to try using music to prompt me when I get stuck while writing on the novel. If it works, I will be so excited.
