Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
         ~Alphonse de Lamartine

Whatever your musical tastes may be, we all agree that it's an integral part of our lives. Many of us can remember where we were or what we were doing when we heard a particular tune, of how it inspired us, brought us to tears, or made us giddy with happiness. This contest hopes to recapture those memories (for some of us), by picking up that favorite album, listening to it again and allowing the lyrics or tune to inspire our creativity through writing.

Special shout-out to iKïyå§ama who originally created this activity and allowed us to bring it under the Soundtrackers banner. *Delight*

*Note* You are required to create a FOLDER or BOOK item specifically for this contest.

*Note* The title of the folder or book must be the name of the album you have chosen.

*Note* There must be an introduction of sorts about the album - its history and why it's so important to you, why you chose it, etc. This should, preferably be written in the body section of your folder or the header section of your book item.

*Note* Each story you write must have the title of a song on the album.

*Note* This is a contest for short stories and flash fiction only. No poetry or nonfiction will be accepted.

*Note* All songs in the album must be used (Judges will do research just to be sure).

*Note* Lyrics of each song (if applicable) must be placed at beginning or end of the story. Lyrics do not count toward the total word count.

*Note* All stories must not exceed 1,500 words. Please include a word count with each story.

*Note* All stories must not exceed a GC rating.

*Note* Stories can be connected to each other or can stand alone.

*Note* Judging will be based on overall quality of all stories and not just the strength of any particular one.

*Note* Judges reserve the right to either rate/review every story individually, or provide one overall rating/review for the collection as a whole. Since we might have a lot to read, please do not expect detailed reviews.

*Note* Judges for this round of the contest are Jeff , Brooke , and Jayne

*Note* Once judging commences, you may NOT edit your item(s). If we notice a modification date on any item after the deadline, you will be disqualified.

*Note* Entries will be judged on creativity - how well the songs are used for your story, characterization - how 'real' and believable the characters are, plot - how cohesive are the stories (if all are connected) or how well-rounded each one is, spelling/grammar - please be sure to keep this in mind while editing your stories.
