As you all know, in August we had the August One Week Challenge wherein participants were asked to write a 12 page romantic drama/comedy script based on this piece of music. We had 37 entries. The fine folks over at iScript.com were kind enough to select one script out of the group to be recorded.

The selected script is Our Time Deserves A Love Song by Marnie Mitchell Lister (wannabe) .

An aging musician relives his first love when someone asks what inspired him to write a particular love song.
