Mid-Month Short Story Challenge #12

It’s the middle of summer if you’re in the northern hemisphere. If you’re like me, that means you’re struggling through the worst part of the year, begging and pleading that fall and winter will come sooner rather than later. Since there wasn’t much of a spring time in the Midwestern USA this year, it’s doubly the truth.

What better way to beat the summertime blues1Alan Jackson fans are free to take a shot here. than to go inside, crank up the air conditioner, listen to some music, and write a story? And even if you’re the type that likes being outdoors, I’m sure there’s a shade tree or a park where you can do the same — as this month’s prompt post is a little bit different from previous ones. This will be the start of two consecutive music related theme prompts, so let me know how you like it.

Your prompt is for this month below. Your story should be posted on August 1, 2018. Be sure to link back to this post so I can see your story and share.

  • Suggested number of words: Minimum 500 words, no maximum
  • Seven words to work into your story: Gravity, reject, narrow, relief, defiant, register, staircase
  • Genre: Open to you
  • Rating/Content/Perspective Limitation: No limitations
  • Topic: It’s up to you…but you have to write your story based on a song. You get to pick the song, you get to pick the topic, you get to write the story. Just be sure to add a note (or a link) within your post indicating what song you used for inspiration.

  1. Guess who’s back? 😉

    And the timing to encounter this writing prompt couldn’t be better. Though the last word you have listed into the overall assignment adds a layer of challenge to this – but I suppose that’s why it’s called the mid-month short story challenge, no? 😛
