Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s FAWM time again! I’m looking forward to hearing your music. I always leave with more than I came with thanks to this amazing community.
As always, the FAWM challenge encourages me to take chances, pushes my limits and stretches my songwriting (and time management) muscles. For me, the most helpful thing about FAWM is shutting off the critical part of my brain and getting into the habit of writing. I think of it as my yearly boot camp. It’s time to “Do The Work” as Steven Pressfield says.
About me: I’m a singer songwriter and a member of the band The Paper Chain Gang and Domestic Disturbance. Some of my FAWM songs have gone out into the world and found homes in films and TV shows. Thanks FAWM!
UPDATE: Well, things don't always go as planned! Looks like I won't be getting to 14 - but I'm going to try for 10. I haven't had a chance to listen as much as I'd like, but after Tuesday I'm going on a FAWM listening binge. Sounds yummy!! 😀
Thank you for you kind comments on my Valentine song "For Me", but I must admit I like your Valentine or rather Anti-Valentine song much more... wow!
Hi, thanks for your comment on Valentine's Day 😀 it's probably my favorite one so far so I'm happy it gets love 😀
Hi Mitchmash from Mike in Mass.
Yo @mitchmash , thank you for the comment. I'm behind on listening and commenting, first because I have a work deadline for tomorrow AM (aaaaaaaaaaargh) and also because I'm studying this year, and have been in combat with the IT department of my university, culminating in me having to spend the day there yesterday. All is now sorted out, I am a mere 2 weeks behind (aaaaaaaaaaaaaargh).
So I am totally going to listen to your stuff, I'm just pushing it out until I can actually give it focus, you know? and comment more constructively than "that's cool."
Seeing you has put a smile on my face!! I await your creations!!!
Thanks for the comments on my video. 😀
I love FAWM and wanted all the newbies (and maybe even some vets) to know some of the features that I've discovered. 😀
And happy FAWM to you! Your songs are always captivating; I'm looking forward to your output this year (and am priming myself by listening to "Long Gone" on your website right now).
Hi! Thanks for the note - have a great FAWM! 😁
Hey MM, hope to see you around again this year.
