Welcome to August — objectively the worst month of the year for anyone who likes holidays, cold weather, or nighttime1In the northern hemisphere, at least.. August is always the month of the year that I like the least and that feels (to me) like the hardest to get through. I don’t like to do much of anything in August2I say this despite having a ton of posts written for this month., not to mention it always seems like the month where I’m the most creatively stagnant3Which is in no way convenient to the fact that this is the first month I have Patreon rewards going out..
I’ve been told that some of you out there feel the same way, so I figured, why not build off of last month’s music based theme? However, instead of you having to pick your own song and coming up with a post based off of that, I’ve given you three song options to choose from directly in this post. Two of the songs are peppy, upbeat, new songs, while the third is a song I was saving for last month’s prompt for myself…only to forget that I wanted to use it after the fact.
Your prompt is for this month below. Your story should be posted on September 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: None…but you must work in at least one line from the song you choose in the topic section below.
- Genre: Open to you
- Rating/Content/Perspective Limitation: No limitations
- Topic: It’s up to you…that said, you must write a story inspired by one of the three songs linked below.
