A Writer’s Notebook: Sittin’ In at OBCBYL

As I did last October, I’m writing a story for Ryan Werner’s Our Band Could Be Your Lit project. This won’t be just this week, though. Ryan is busy compiling a story-collection manuscript (which I fully expect he’ll get published, though if his book appears in print before any of mine do, I might have to friend-divorce him), so I’m filling in for about a month. That means the next few Writer’s Notebook entries will all be OBCBYL stories, which post online each Sunday.

So, to keep the ball rolling here on Fridays without stepping on the toes of those Sunday stories, I’m not going to post the actual results of my weekly writing exercises for the next month. Instead, I’ll post the song I’m writing about and simply let you wonder what sort of story I might write about it. Then you can tune into OBCBYL on Sundays and see the results there.

Or, better still, while you wait you can write your own story!

Or, send Ryan a song suggestion (yes, musicians, you can submit your own stuff if you really want to) and see what sort of story he might write.

And in the meantime, read some of the “back issues” of OBCBYL, because there’s some cool fiction over there!
