  1. Hi This first challenge is pretty straight forward. There are no topic restrictions, or song form restrictions. The challenge is to write lyrics in a conversational style, both verse/chorus/refrain etc... all should be conversational. What exactly do I mean? The idea is that the lrics should read like you are talking to someone. The concepts of rhyme and rhythm still apply, even if your rhyme scheme is to have no rhymes (ie no accidental rhymes). For this to work, first person is essential. A good rule of thumb is, "would I say this to someone... in this way?". It has to be convincing. One tip would be to think on a subject, then write down a load of phrases related to the subject. this can give you ideas, even complete lines. Feel free to use phrases with tweaked/twisted/reverse meanings. A play on words / phrases can make an excellent lyrical hook! Just add your works as an answer to this topic Cheers John
