Writer’s Prompt

Here is Sam the LibrariHam’s writing from Thursday night’s prompt.

Prompt created/modified by William L.:

Step 1: Open your playlist.
Step 2: Put your playlist on shuffle.
Step 3: Use the first song base what your main character’s personality is like.
Step 4:  Use the second song to base what your main character looks like.
Step 5:  Use the third song to base what your story is going to be about.
Step 6:  Use the fourth song to base what kind of world your character lives in.

Here is a link to the playlist of shuffled songs I got:  Spotify

Tom Petty and the Heartbreaks – Walls
Katy Rose – Overdrive
Magnetic Fields – All My Little Words
Land of Ill Earthquakes – Acres of Fakers

I threw together a little something based on the song titles or lyrics that amused me so I thought I’d share it with the blog here.  Here is what I wrote:

Tom has a heart so big it could crush this town.  He was cherry cola with candy eyes.  Tom was in love with a splendid butterfly- but he could never make them stay.  For, sadly he was in a world of acres and acres of complete fakers.

Feel free to try the prompt out yourself and let me know the results in the comments.  🙂
The whole thing is up to your interpretation.
