Heck I was looking back and I think I did my first FAWM maybe in 2006? Cause I did LOTR theme in 2007...
Wowwwwserrr

I usually write on a theme... I've done Lord of the Rings, I've done Camelot, space, 'cats', random phrases from old journals.... Star Trek. In 2016 I did 'Songs of the Milky Way', you can hear some of them here:

((Oh yeah, some folks might know me as "Hummingbird" *grins*))

My favourite thing about FAWM, 50-90, NaNoWriMo, GYAWS, etc., is the sense of community and the inspiring nature of the challenges. I try not to hate those who write 100 songs in 20 days or complete the challenge by day 3; and I try to appreciate my own feeble efforts to make at least the required number. But above all, it's the participation and the fact that you wrote something you wouldn't have written without that compulsion to rise to the challenge... for that I am really grateful 😁
---------------------------------------

So here we are, 2017!!! What's up y'all? We've been collectively wringing our hands on FB waiting for the site to come up. Now it's here, the terrific theme idea I had totally escapes me...... no, wait! I remember now!!

I'll be posting some stuff here

and on Soundcloud.
=================
I really want to make the Century club this FAWM. And it's an awesome goal, I am so inspired by the variety of writing I've heard. I only wish there was time to listen to every FAWM song!

  • @ryako  Feb 7

    Thanks for the nice comment! I performed in musicals as a teenager and loved it a lot. I'm also a big fan of movie scores, so I figured that I'd give this whole thing a shot.
