Ok, so while trying to get to sleep, about an hour ago, I decided to listen to "For Crying out Loud" by Meatloaf. I tried to daynightdream (Dreaming while awake at night) me singing the song.... the music has unleashed a story. I tried to keep the story going. I then listened to "Hallelujah" by Paramore, then "No Suprise" by Chris Daughtry. Here is the story:
Plot: A man and his band have a dream of becomming big. The man is the singer. He meets a girl, who helps his band out, and is a guest singer with the man.The man feels this may be the perfect girl for him, until a terrible accident happens. Doctors struggle to keep the girl alive, but she ends up dying. The man, being so depressed, departs from his band until he finds life. He starts touring solo around his hometown. He dedicates a performance of a cover of the song "For Crying out Loud" by Meatloaf to the girl. At the end, he breaks down and curls in a ball in the back of the stage. Being so depressed, he doesn't realize that he falls asleep. He wakes up a few hours later. He finally leaves the empty theater, to go to the girls house. It is empty, except for her dog. He feeds the dog. He thens becomes curious, and reads the girls diary. The last entry of the day said "I am not sure why, but something doesn't feel right. If anything happens to me, let (the mans name) know, I love him". The man can't help but to be sad, with a touch of happiness. He places the diary back in her drawer, and goes back to the garage where his band practiced. He soon finds out that the band had found a new singer, and has ditched him... to already have a platinum record released. Will the man find hope to find his dream?
Please tell me what you think. Tell me if you think I should try to see if maybe I can write it, then possibly get it published? I really want your opinion.
Okay, so I just wrote my first chapter. Here it is:
"Hey. Gimmie that drumstick over there. I lost my other one,"
"Well, you know that being destroyed will leave a void"
"Shuddup with your logic, Brian. Wait... destroyed...void. Write that down for a song!"
No one knew the drummers name. They just called him "Animal". The lead guitarist is Brian. The rythm guitarists name was Chad. But most importantly, the singers name was Damian. Damian Blue. Everyone knew his name. He was the popular one of the town.
"Destroy... and... void.... Got it!" Brian said in a monotone voice.
"Killer! Okay, lets practice our song Lost"
So they did. They played. This is the bands most enjoyed song. Everyone loved it. The town, the citizens, the kids, and even the mayor showed up at a concert. These are the people, this is the life, this is the band "Pessimist or Optimist?"
