30 Day Song Challenge for Writers

I was reading a blog called Classic Ramblings, and the blogger there announced she was going to do a 30 Day Song challenge in August. You can see the list she’s using, and which inspired this post, by visiting her blog. I thought it might be fun to re-write this specifically for writers. Here’s what I’ve come up with. I’ll be posting a new song each day for the first 30 days in the month of August.

I’m inviting you to join me and post links to your blogs in the comments. Or just comment with a song that fits the day’s theme. You can join in any time. Even if you’re coming to this a few months later, please feel free to share this list and contribute. I’d still love to hear from you πŸ™‚

EDIT: my song challenge is complete, but you can still comment or start a challenge of your own. I’ve updated this post with links to each of my songs (scroll down past the image).
