Write a short story based around a well known song. Use the lyrics to reflect and guide your story and incorporate all of them somehow within the text. This is quite a tricky old bird to nail down so you get two months to crack it.

There's no limit on word length but try to avoid a novel if you can and no restriction of genre - short stories only, please. Just make it as original as you can.

Good luck and enjoy!


Kudos and mucho respect.
