Contest name: I Write the Songs

Whether you are a girl who likes a bump and grind on the dance floor, sings into your hairbrush or imagines a slow dance with a tall blond sex god, this is the contest for you! Any song will do as long as it inspires you to write, you can't get much more 'Free Bird' than that can you? Join us, we want to 'Teach the World to Sing' (well the SVM fandom anyway :))

"Do Me” “Feel Like Makin Love” “Pillow Talk” "Love to Love You Baby” “Freak Me” “I Want to Sex You Up” themes encouraged but not required.

If you have the urge to write some Pam and Eric snark; “How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away”, “Papa Don’t Preach” or any other non-romantic pairing with Eric then ‘Have the time of your life’.

Your Host is: Northwoman (Anne)

For more information see our blog: http://i-writethesongs.blogspot.com


Rules:

Use a song as the title

2,000 – 12,000 words, unlimited for multi-chapter fics

Can be a first chapter to a multi-chapter fic, which you can add to after the contest ends. Pleas specify if you plan to continue the story.

Canon SVM, AU,OOC or AH

Eric and Sookie with each other if either one is romantically paired (psst … the more Eric the better!) Otherwise Snarky Pam, Kill Bill or torture Quinn themes are good too. Or do a bromance. Or a Pam/Stan or Jason/ Michele, or Sophie Anne / Andre or Amelia /Trey or Bill / Lorena, or some other pairing. Humor is as valuable as lemons any day!
