This FAWM I did a challenge where I was paired up with another FAWMer and we each gave the other a prompt. I gave my partner a link to a Pinterest board and the instruction to write a song inspired by it, and they did the same for me in return. I really liked the board I was given to write about and the way the song came out, and I thought other people might like to try something similar.
In case anyone here is completely unfamiliar with Pinterest, let me give a brief explanation. A Pinterest board is the digital equivalent of cutting out a bunch of pictures from magazines and glueing them to poster board as a way of gathering inspiration for a specific project. It's basically just a page full of images collected from all over the internet that are chosen to fit a theme or aesthetic.
If you're interested, let me know below and I'll assign you a board (maybe one of mine, maybe someone else's that I think is inspiring). Alternatively, feel free to just head over to Pinterest.com and find a board you like on your own. Either way, tag your songs #pinterestprompt, and share them in this thread.
Sounds intriguing! Yes, please - sign me up.
Sure, feel free to assign me one. I feel like that's more fun and challenging than choosing my own.
