IDK I thought it was cool! Though I also get the feeling of there being so many directions that it's nearly a free round which can make it hard.

 

I loved my idea I came up with and I think this is already stronger than most of what I sent in GH1 so I'm feeling great about myself :)

Well I wrote… something. It is a song, ostensibly. It has words with a certain rhythm in a certain structure, there’s certainly no denying that…

 

 

 

But yeah, put me on the list of people who did not care for this challenge. Animal songs. I feel like they’ve either all been done or else aren’t worth doing. :michael:

Miss 503 has been in full force today. :deadbanana2:

 

Looking forward to reading all of your submissions! By now of course everyone will know that the deadline for Round 1 has elapsed, however if you're still finishing up an entry or would like to make any alterations, we'll accept those final submissions until the reviews start coming in. :celestial5: Mine will most likely be posted at least 24 hours from now, either in one or two batches depending on if I have enough time to read all of your lovely works in one sitting. :heart2:

 

Best of luck and let those creative muscles rest up in preparation for Round 2, coming on Saturday!

5. What are some of your main sources of creative inspiration?

Photography and visual art honestly, I'm notorious, for better or worse, for using a lot of imagery in my writing :keir: Photoshop art is my main form of expression, until this week I hadn't written since early 2019 :skull:

Did anyone have any other ideas than what they submitted? Let’s share those!

 

i liked where I was going with this chorus but I didn’t try to write anything else 

 

Spoiler

I wish I could fly high

Like a starling in the sky

Spread my wings and say goodbye

To this world behind me

Where the sky is clear blue

And there’s nothing else to do

But (something hereeeee idk what)

That I’ve left behind me

Cute acoustic countrish track in my mind

Reminder that the second challenge is coming tomorrow, and Round 1’s results will be on Sunday :giraffe:

I didn't really get past the concept phase for any other ideas I had, though I did have an idea to write something  based off the rat utopia project...another time perhaps

I've read about these hellhounds
In fanciful post-Renaissance fears
But when I traveled to Anglia I found the shuck has a presence here
The countryfolk stay in at night out of caution for their fates
But I'm determined to see for myself the beast that awaits
