Bring Your iTunes!

Wednesdays are Creative days over at Swords & Stiletto. Jump start your creativity (this is for anyone, not just writers!) by participating in the exercise of the day!

Today you'll need your iPod, iTunes, or mp3 player and a fun assortment of songs to choose from. :)

See you there!


  1. I'm still working on mine, but had to share this gem (along the same lines as what you asked for) by Amanda Holzer (my students LOVED this):

  2. My second try - took 1 line and then wrote the rest:

    I can be your liar
    I can be your bearer of bad news
    I can be your secret
    I can be the one who cuts you loose

    And it's no use in trying
    If you won't tell me the truth
    And it's no use in crying
    If I can't cry to you

    I can be your hunger
    I can be the one who lets you down
    I can be your anger
    I can be your voice without a sound

    And it's no use in running
    if you won't admit where you've been
    and it's no use in loving
    if you can't stand to let me in

    All of your pieces broken
    For me
    All of me poured out for you

    For you.
