Give me a link to a piece of music that means something to you, then write something about it. Story; poem; biography; how the music makes you feel, everything goes.

I want your best boy meets girl romance story. It must contain one main conflict and resolution. It can be a happy ending or a thwarted ending but it has to make me feel good for both of the main characters at the end. Gay/lesbian LGBTQ+ is okay!

Write a story about a family member in a generation that preceded yours. Show us their story and put it in historical perspective. There are lots of prompts for inspiration but you are not tied to any one of them.
