Today I saw a piece of my writing in print for the first time.

I always thought it would be a happy occasion and something I would celebrate. Instead, today has been emotional and exhausting.

Today, we laid my nan to rest.

My first ever printed piece of writing was a poem, which I read today at the funeral.

Since it is still the first time ever that I have seen my name in print next to a piece of my writing, I wanted to share it with you.

Song Lyric Stories – 2015

Hello my lovely followers!

I only managed to do a couple of Song Lyric Story prompts last year, but I love the idea. So, for 2015 I pledge to post song lyrics as a prompt each and every Saturday. I will also write a story from the prompt for each week. I would be thrilled and overjoyed if you would join me and link your stories to these weekly posts. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with; the responses to my previous posts were fantastic!

So without further ado, this week’s song lyrics are from Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson, featuring Bruno Mars:

“Don’t believe me, just watch!”

You can use these words in your story, reference the song, or just use these words purely as inspiration without featuring them at all. Your story should be between 1000 and 1500 words long and ideally should be posted and linked to this post by next Saturday.

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with. Time for me to go and work on a story myself!

Happy Writing!
