52 Songs 52 Stories

It's a simple idea, really. Each week in 2012 I'm going to pick a song, usually at random. I'm going to write a very short story inspired by that song, and post a video for the song and a story here. From author Iain Rowan.

A few years ago I remember thinking "It would be so cool if someone made a short film based on a song!" Then I realized I reverse-engineered the music video.

That said, I read the first story and liked it a lot. This is cool.

I'm not a huge fan of the writing style--I can tell some of it is well-written, but it's just not my thing--but this idea is super, super cool. I'd rather do this than NaNo.

Yes! I can do this! NaNo was just way too overwhelming for me. This I can do. Probably not well. But yes, I am pretty sure I just felt a very subtle, vaguely familiar spark.

Shouldn't this be here, just for the name? Someone should write the story.

Thank you, all. Glad you liked the idea, feel free to pinch it, but let me know so I can read your stories too.
