At the Ballet

Recently, I saw the movie version of "A Chorus Line" (after years of not having watched it). I wrote about my new view of this movie in my personal blog. I kept thinking of how the lyrics to "At the Ballet" had a chick lit feel to them. The lyrics can be found here.

I thought it would be a fun writing challenge to take one of the stories in the song and turn it into a short story with a chick lit angle. I present this challenge to you if you have a writing blog or are just looking for a creative writing exercise. It is not a contest, just a fun thinking and writing activity. (However, if you'd be interested in me running a writing contest in the future, please speak up!)

If you end up taking on this challenge, please send me a link to wherever you have posted it. If you'd like me to post your story on this blog (giving you credit, of course), please let me know. I may even take on the challenge myself when I feel motivated enough. I'll share what I come up with too!

I had every intention of beginning this challenge this morning, but got caught up on twitter. It's on my to do list.

I had so much fun completing this challenge. It took me back to my days dancing with the Arkansas Ballet. Great memories. I still think of dancing The Nutcracker every time I get a whiff of stage make-up.
