The challenge this week is to write a song based on a newspaper provided to us. This one has proven to be difficult due to the sheer number of possibilities. There are funny articles, there are serious articles, there are comic strips and personal advertisements! How can one choose!? We ended up splitting up the newspaper between the three of us and sending articles that we liked to the group. We also struggled this week finding time to workshop the song - there are only so many days in the week and we have significant others who would like to see us every once in a while. But, we finally decided on an article about a woman who subscribed to USA Today and never got her paper. We hear a lot about these big earth-shattering news events, but the little stories are important too, and we wanted to highlight that.
