Lyrical Fiction Friday

Will you join in on the song lyric fiction Friday #MarquessaChallenge?

For many of us, songs and their lyrics inspire our fiction writing. So why not challenge yourself to write a fiction piece based on a song lyric every week?

The #MarquessaChallenge is easy.

Each Thursday, I post a song lyric as a prompt and your challenge is write a fiction piece to post on Fridays (or a day that is convenient for you). If you don’t like the lyric, you can use another lyric from the song or you can simply write whatever inspires you – you don’t need to use the exact lyric word for word.

Flash fiction, regular fiction, poem, prose…the choice is yours!

Here are the rules:

  1. Post your fiction piece on your own blog
  2. Tag your piece with #marquessachallenge so that others can find your story in the WP Reader, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
  3. Pingback to the posted weekly prompt in your fiction piece and drop a link to your post in the comment box of the weekly prompt
  4. Visit, read and comment on the other participant contributions by using the #marquessachallenge
  5. Tag a fiction writing friend if you like

I’m looking forward to the beautiful creations you come up with!

And if you would like to suggest a song lyric, I am open to suggestions – please drop them in the comments.
