I brought up this songwriting challenge idea to a few of the songsmithies on the site. The Game is this, each month I will present another tag line as the basis for a song. Each writer then pens a song using the words I post. It should be an interesting exercise. Everyone is welcome to join in. When you are happy with your song post it. More than one song is fine. Poets here that have never written a song - now's the time to give it a go. If you know a newbee songwriter, hobby songwriter, or old pro, have them sign up on Lit.org and join in.

Okay ya'all here is the Game. The tag is 'All alone' The simple rules are that you must use the tag 'All alone' in the chorus/refrain - OR 'All alone' must be within a line of verse in every stanza. Other than that - no rules. I will comment on every Game post and every writer should (But not required} comment on all the other Game posts.
Though there is no genre restrictions - it would be a great learning tool if each songwriter opened each post with a short comment on what genre they were writing in. ie: Blues, Ballad, Bluegrass, Country, Country Rock, Rock, Torch, Hard rock, Americana, Folk or any sub-genre you would create. This would help the reader 'hear' your words. And perhaps, also a short note as to the inspiration for the song. (This is always interesting.)
LET THE GAME BEGIN!!!
"ALL ALONE" August's Game .
Why is doing what you love the hardest thing to do? Is it because failing what you thought defined you would be too devastating a thing from which to recover? If so, we stay where mere accident has left us.
