A Certain Type of Decisive

I like to spread that trashy art around. Everyone deserves some overly emotional poetry, overly harmonic music, and oversaturated pictures- what can I say? I'm an overachiever.

FREE WRITING

18
Write me a story and I'll write you song
Give me poem and give you a melody
I'll trade notes for words
And phrases for phrases
Art is cyclical and I am not about to waste it

Any piece strong thematically that you think could make a nice song, link it in and I'll see if I can write a song for it. If it goes well, I'll share it! If not, I'll have read some good poems and stories. When I say strong thematically, I mean it in a way that music could make sense, gothic, romantic, space-age- anywhere genres of literature overlap with genres of music. Old, new, it doesn't matter to me, of you want to send in somebody else's piece, that's cool, too.

I had planned on doing this without telling people, but I realized a lot of writers would love to hear something based on what they wrote, so I thought I'd open it up. I'll comment the link to the song on your piece, but you can also find them on my soundcloud: soundcloud.com/acoolgecko

Thanks Anne Blackwood and HelpMe512 for really inspiring poems and bingbong for an adorable set of stories.

    Wow! You seriously are an other-worldly being! I am so glad you liked the piece and you captured its essence perfectly! I got the fun summer vibes, but also the undertones of longing, nostalgia, and a bit of romance! Wow! I am blown away! I'm really interested in music, so I'm curious. Did you mix this IN soundcloud? Or did you use another software? I've experimented a little with Garage Band, but I've never come up with anything good. Again, stunned! *mind explodes* *sets song on repeat for like 27 years* Thank you!

    replying: mm i see! what would you like a piece dedicated to you be about? if you can’t think of anything i’m sure i’ll scrounge up something. pieces to be converted?...just one last one of mine, only if you’re still bored, but my piece “the water lilies bring us” is a bit short but i think it has an easy essence so! if you’re still up for it, it’d be wonderful to hear it, but again, no obligation whatsoever!: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/162573/version/317946

    Hey, I saw your comment on the_enclave's post, and I wanted to thank you for writing it. Your encouragement early on was fundamental to me becoming the writer I am.
    If you don't mind me asking, what is your other account? And who is your sister? Again, if that's too personal I COMPLETELY understand.

    This is such a good idea! Sounds really hard, though.
    This is my best piece that has any sort of theme. If you can make a song about it I will be amazed.
