A Writer’s Notebook: Packing my bags at OBCBYL

And just like that, my tenure at Our Band Could Be Your Lit is coming to an end: this week, I’m writing my last story for this project. And it couldn’t come at a better time, because Ryan Werner has decided to start throwing simply idiotic songs at me. Seriously — his words: “For your last three, here some of the most ridiculous songs I could find.”

I’ve been mulling my choices over for days now, and I still don’t know what I’m going to do for this last story, but here’s the song I picked, for better or worse.

And that’ll be that. Next week, I’ll move on to other writing exercises and new ideas. But it’s been great fun these past several weeks, and it’s been good for my writing, I think — I’ve actually quite liked the fiction I’ve written for OBCBYL; even last week’s story, which I wasn’t sure about even when I submitted it, has grown on me.

Here’s hoping this last story turns out as well. Tune in early next week to find out!
