Creative Writing (CW): Dialogue – with a song.

It was Goldie who introduced me to Creative Writing challenges.
Now, I’m not as good G, but I do enjoy trying sometimes.
And now I even took part of Carrot Ranch competition!

We were being challenged to write exactly 99 words around the topic of Dialogue.

My dialog with a song on the radio

I could hide ‘neath the wings
Of the Blue Bird as she sings
The six o’clock alarm would never ring

“Yeah right, like that would ever happen! This is real life, you know!” I shouted.
This morning.
The bed was too comfy, the alarm too loud, the coffee canister too empty.

But it rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
The shaving razor’s cold and it stings

“That’s more like it”, I confirmed, “I can’t be a Daydream Believer, I’ve seen too much.”
I looked at the time, 6:15.
Time to speed up a bit more.

This song was was Daydream Believer by the Monkees.
I quite often listen to the actual lyrics of a song and respond to it.
That’s basically all I do on my morning drive to work.

Do you listen to the lyrics of songs?
Do you also respond to it like I do? 😉

  1. Yay thank you!
    I think they will announce the winners only in November, but I am excited. It’s been a while since I competed in anything! 🙂

  2. I hate to sound like a disingenuous seller but you should absolutely read my book, you might be my target audience. I believe you can get it for free with kindle unlimited at the moment, it downloads on most tablets and phones I think. Its very entertaining.

  3. Oh interesting!
    What is it about?
    I am thinking about buying a kindle.
    At the moment I am in the middle of a move from one country to another, so ordering a paperback would be tricky.
    But I’m intrigued.

  4. That was pretty funny.
    I don’t talk back to the songs all that much.
    In the mornings, I usually don’t even listen to the lyrics. I’m not awake enough for that. But I did make it a point to start being mindful during my drives to work, so I listen to the actual words on the radio more.

  5. Not really news. But kind of.
    Christy’s Monday (?) post inspired me to search for a religious radio station. And that’s what I’ve been listening the past couple of days. It is music (with somewhat encouraging lyrics) and a bit of talking. The talking part, though, is unrelated. It’s about some fun facts from around the world.
    I’m still tweaking this routine out.
    I can’t do news in the morning. I’m looking for something more of a talk-show.

  6. Sometimes I’ll actually listen to the lyrics of a song I’ve already heard a lot and think, “That’s what it really says?” lol other times I’m like, “yeah I know what you mean” when I identify with a certain song. lol

  7. I find that particularly true regarding songs from my childhood, from when I didn’t pay attention to the words all that much. Now I hear the words and the whole song is changed. (ex: sounds upbeat, but the lyrics are sad)
