    somehow, “one line of desperation” becomes “a line to motivation”?

  3. Avatar White Marvin

    i have the lines from old lyrics i made. the melody still stuck in my head. i hope it gets into others.

  4. Avatar April Raines

    I thought of something I want to write, but it’s too short. Dang it.

  5. Avatar i, Coomber

    Slightly more than one line, but I hope my entry still pleases.

    this just came to me as i read through the synonyms

  7. Avatar Spiderj

    Figured I’d go in for some polite desperation, being British and all.

  8. Avatar Ronnie

    Usually I don’t have time to read all of the entries. Not this time! Woohoo!

  9. Avatar Sneaky"LoA"Cleazy

    Nevermind, fixed it.

  14. Avatar Elisabeth L. Davis(LoA)

    Accidentally used two sentences, want me to change it? Still fits in a single line.
