Admit it: You know T-Swift’s new album 1989 backwards and forwards. You don’t even have to think about what song comes after “Bad Blood” because, I mean, it’s obviously “Wildest Dreams.”And those subtle harmonies in the chorus of “All You Had to Do Was Stay”? You nail them every time. Now how about we put all that Swiftian knowledge to some good better use.
Here’s your prompt: Set a timer for 48 minutes and 11 seconds, the exact run-time of 1989 (minus the super rad songs that are on the deluxe edition). Within that time, and in 500 words or less, write a short-short story/scene/run of dialogue using each song title from 1989. Have fun with it! Go somewhere you never thought you’d go in your WILDEST DREAMS.Remember: the goal here isn’t to write something that’s pitch perfect (see what I did there?), but to just get something on the page. If you read it back and it’s terrible, SHAKE IT OFF.
