CONGRATS TO WINNER:
DON'T FORGET THE LYRICS
Not so much the lies I'm just lost in my mind
Trying to find what it is that makes me feel right inside
And I'm submerged by the urge to make it by day and night
I'm in the struggle looking to fight for the right
To be more than just alright...
And I'm looking for more light so I can see what they got in store for my life
Using the lyrics above, please write a story at any length from flash fiction to (not quite) novella. DEADLINE: July 6th.
