    Ooooo this looks fun!! So, does it have to be about the song itself, or a situation like the song?

    I would say use the song itself. So like if you chose Enchanted then write about this girl who's fallen in love with this guys and she hopes he doesn't have a different girl on his mind. Hope this helps!

    Re: Taylor Swift Writing Contest!

    Mon, Nov 12, 2012 at 7:23 PM

    Here's my story, based on the song All Too well.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I stood there, alone, at the corner of Pine and Main Street, as the gentle autumn breeze passed through my hair. I looked over at the cars passing, and I notice something. A little red car almost ran the light. Then I realized, I know that car. I look and see that my ex-boyfriend, Jason, is driving, and he looked dead at me.
    That moment, I remembered all the wonderful times we had together. When we were driving and singing together. When we got lost upstate. The first time we kissed. When we danced around the kitchen at two o'clock in the morning. When he taught me about everything in his past. And the most wonderful of all, the time he first asked me out.
    I decide that I cannot dwell on these things, that they would only make me crazy. Instead, I just look away, and walk home. I know what I did to myself. I broke up with him for no reason at all, and now I'm the one suffering.
    As I'm walking, it begins to rain. I don't walk fast, but instead, my steps slow down. I'm feeling so many different things, but I don't know exactly what they are. I don't know if I'm happy or sad, or heartbroken or relieved. All I know, is that I remember this relationship all too well.
    I get home after walking in the rain, and I pick up my cat, Elle. I hug her and think about what could have failed in the relationship. Yes, I was very needy, always asking for things. Not material things, but things that required Jason's efforts. I know that he was annoyed by this, but it was just the way I was.
    I go to sleep that night, and begin to cry. I realize that I truly do miss Jason. And I know that there's absolutely nothing I can do about it.

    ~Two Weeks Later~

    I think that I've finally gotten over Jason, and I'm never going to return to that pain. Which is when my phone rings. I don't look at the name, I just pick up.
    “Hello, Marybeth?” I hear a voice say.
    “Hello? Who is this?” I reply.
    “It's Jason,” he says. I bite down on my thumb, and shut my eyes. Why is he calling me? Why does he want to talk to me now, after all this time? Why does he suddenly want to know what I'm up to?
    “I just wanted to call and see how you're doing, and see what you're up to. I haven't done much lately, but I've been spending time with this girl lately. She seems really nice. Her name is Nicolina DeLaCruz. Do you know her?” he asks. Of course. That's why he would call.
    “Uh, no, I don't. Sorry. I've been good though. Thanks for calling,” I say, fighting back the tears that are coming.
    “All right, bye Marybeth,” he says, before hanging up. I stare at my phone, trying to contain myself, until I lose it. I throw my phone across the room, and it hits the wall. I break down and cry. I can't help myself. I'm just a baby. This is why he agreed to leave you. If you weren't so weak, you might still have him.
    “Marybeth, it's all in the past now. He lost you. You're a great person. He's the one missing out,” I tell myself through my tears. “You were the one thing he's ever really known, and now you're gone. He's just pretending.”
    I look outside, and I realize that through my tears, it started to snow. Which calmed me slightly. I get dressed, and go outside, nearly tripping over a box. I didn't order anything, so either this was sent to the wrong house, or someone mailed me something. And it was the second idea.
    I take it inside, and open it up. I see a bunch of things, that have no connection, and try to figure out what they are. It hits me. My old books. My favorite CDs. My bracelets. My hair clips. My jacket. Everything I've ever given to Jason. But I realize there's one thing missing. My old plaid scarf.

    This is my story about Enchanted!!

    I picture Enchanted in a far away forest were birds and deer stand by your side when you need it. Right in the midst of everything there is a glen in the woods made out of straw and wood. Standing in front of the glen is a giant waterfall with mermaids dancing in the water, then suddenly you hear a thump in the woods, you turn around and walk near it when you find mirrors and fountains surrounded by trees mirrors are hanging from old oak trees. you look in the mirror and find a prince staring at you! you touch the miror when suddenly your fingers fall right through!! you step in the mirror and dance with the prince all night long in an ancieent castle with paintings of kings and queens. Then the prince takes your hand and leads you to a pavillion and he leans in to kiss you.......

    That's my story about Enchanted hope you liked it!!!

    This one is based of the song, "I Almost Do". It's not the best, but I hope you like it!

    I looked up from the book I was reading. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't focus. A name repeated over and over in my mind. But it wasn't just any random name. It was his name. “Call him. Right now,” the lovestruck part of my mind urged. My body responded before I had time to argue. I found myself with my finger on the “call” button when the my sensible side kicked in. “What are you doing? You can't do this. Not again.” I wasn't sure what I wanted. My brain argued with itself. He was probably still up, it wasn't that late. In fact, he was probably sitting by the window. Right now. He couldn't be busy, right? But the practical side of me won. I closed the call screen dejectedly. Confusion echoed through me. I was better off...probably. I went back to my book. Maybe, just maybe, he'd call me.

    Here's my story, based on the song All Too well.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I stood there, alone, at the corner of Pine and Main Street, as the gentle autumn breeze passed through my hair. I looked over at the cars passing, and I notice something. A little red car almost ran the light. Then I realized, I know that car. I look and see that my ex-boyfriend, Jason, is driving, and he looked dead at me.
    That moment, I remembered all the wonderful times we had together. When we were driving and singing together. When we got lost upstate. The first time we kissed. When we danced around the kitchen at two o'clock in the morning. When he taught me about everything in his past. And the most wonderful of all, the time he first asked me out.
    I decide that I cannot dwell on these things, that they would only make me crazy. Instead, I just look away, and walk home. I know what I did to myself. I broke up with him for no reason at all, and now I'm the one suffering.
    As I'm walking, it begins to rain. I don't walk fast, but instead, my steps slow down. I'm feeling so many different things, but I don't know exactly what they are. I don't know if I'm happy or sad, or heartbroken or relieved. All I know, is that I remember this relationship all too well.
    I get home after walking in the rain, and I pick up my cat, Elle. I hug her and think about what could have failed in the relationship. Yes, I was very needy, always asking for things. Not material things, but things that required Jason's efforts. I know that he was annoyed by this, but it was just the way I was.
    I go to sleep that night, and begin to cry. I realize that I truly do miss Jason. And I know that there's absolutely nothing I can do about it.

    ~Two Weeks Later~

    I think that I've finally gotten over Jason, and I'm never going to return to that pain. Which is when my phone rings. I don't look at the name, I just pick up.
    “Hello, Marybeth?” I hear a voice say.
    “Hello? Who is this?” I reply.
    “It's Jason,” he says. I bite down on my thumb, and shut my eyes. Why is he calling me? Why does he want to talk to me now, after all this time? Why does he suddenly want to know what I'm up to?
    “I just wanted to call and see how you're doing, and see what you're up to. I haven't done much lately, but I've been spending time with this girl lately. She seems really nice. Her name is Nicolina DeLaCruz. Do you know her?” he asks. Of course. That's why he would call.
    “Uh, no, I don't. Sorry. I've been good though. Thanks for calling,” I say, fighting back the tears that are coming.
    “All right, bye Marybeth,” he says, before hanging up. I stare at my phone, trying to contain myself, until I lose it. I throw my phone across the room, and it hits the wall. I break down and cry. I can't help myself. I'm just a baby. This is why he agreed to leave you. If you weren't so weak, you might still have him.
    “Marybeth, it's all in the past now. He lost you. You're a great person. He's the one missing out,” I tell myself through my tears. “You were the one thing he's ever really known, and now you're gone. He's just pretending.”
    I look outside, and I realize that through my tears, it started to snow. Which calmed me slightly. I get dressed, and go outside, nearly tripping over a box. I didn't order anything, so either this was sent to the wrong house, or someone mailed me something. And it was the second idea.
    I take it inside, and open it up. I see a bunch of things, that have no connection, and try to figure out what they are. It hits me. My old books. My favorite CDs. My bracelets. My hair clips. My jacket. Everything I've ever given to Jason. But I realize there's one thing missing. My old plaid scarf.



    My life.

    No, I am kidding.

    I'd probably do this but I fear I have run out of time.
