What's a Lyric Wheel?

Well, it starts with B/A writers signing up (see below). If you sign up, you will need to choose two songs that will later be emailed to another writer.


Two songs? What for?

The person writing the story will choose ONE of the songs as a PROMPT for a B/A story.


How do I use a song as a prompt?

Basically, you pick one verse and include it in the story. The catch is, you can't introduce that verse in song form - meaning no character just happens to be singing/listening to that song. The verse has to be written into the story as a piece of dialogue or prose. (More information on LW.)

The story does NOT need to match the sentiment of the song.


Do I need to write a happy ending?

No, you don't. Rating and genre are your choice. Go where the muse guides you. Besides, this is B/A, 'happiness' has always been in the eye of the beholder.


What if I can't work with either of the offered songs?

Well, I doubt that'll happen. But if you run into an unbreakable writer's block, we'll talk about it.


What if I want to work with both songs?

Then I'll just have to send you virtual chocolate, won't I? *happy grin*


How long does the story have to be?

Anything over 1000 words will make me a happy mod. And when I say 'anything', I mean it (see Rules).


Um. Love the idea, but I don't really have time.

Maybe next time, then? This is much easier to run than cya_ficathon, so there'll probably be a second round in September. But for now, I'd love some PIMPING! ;)


I love the idea! What are the dates?

Sign ups: Tuesday 11th - Friday 14th.
Assignment email: Saturday 15th.
Deadline: JUNE 15th.


A month? What if I finish my story in three days?

Well, I'll be happy to start the Masterlist earlier if the story is betaed.


Er... I still have a question not covered here.

Go to this post and ask away. Comments are screened.
