Week 11: Write a Chorus

I apologize for no video on this one. I blame it on COVID-19.

Write a Chorus in 10 minutes.

You can either pull a chorus idea from a prior free writing exercise, or use a prompt from below.

Your chorus can be as simple as a single word or phrase sung over and over. Or if you want to rhyme it you can use the XAXA rhyme scheme. Don't feel like you have to take yourself too seriously.


I went back to my day 56 writing prompt and picked the first two words from the free write: "Beige carpet." This is what I came up with. 

Beige carpet, Beige carpet

I can't make up my mind

Beige carpet, Beige carpet

Let's make a compromise
