Feb 18: Network issues are fixed. Back in the game!
Feb 13: I've found a little time to work on a couple of songs, but after I've posted them it might just be lyrics for the rest of the month.
Feb 11 update: The network at my wife's office has been down since last Tuesday, so she's been working from home. After almost a week they've finally worked out what the problem is, but they're saying it might be a fortnight before they fix it. I hope that's just the tech people giving themselves plenty of time and it will all be sorted tomorrow. But, if not, I won't be writing any songs for the next two weeks.
The main character in my NaNoWriMo novel from last year stumbled across an old forgotten cassette (I know, a cassette!) his band had recorded many years ago. I thought I'd write the 14 songs on the cassette for this year's FAWM.

Side 1:
(You Never Wanted) Me
She’s Only Happy Sometimes
You Didn’t Say Goodbye
Anger or Innocence (Or Both?)
Alone in this World
This Can’t Be The Place
Windswept and Interesting

Side 2:
Dance With Me Again
The Sheer Face of Love
(Please) Answer The Phone
I Know That This Is Not Goodbye
Standing in Line
Not You, Not Today
An Angel Hits The Ground

    Thank you so much for listening to thoughtfully to "I Remember You" - I really appreciate it!

  • @francessmith  Feb 28

    Congratulations on reaching 14. Some really lovely songs in there, hope you're going to do something with them, and take whatever next step is right for you.

    The post fawm Album Production Challenge provides a nice bit of motivation, and support, to move beyond demos into something a little better. You could try that.

    Because I've been listening to your songs I can see how much more comfortable you seem to have become doing it. I'm a big fan of moving things forwards, and who needs an audience anyway!

  • @francessmith  Feb 25

    I'll probably try and decide which ones I like best, and then make better recordings, and turn them into a Bandcamp album no one will ever buy.

    Adelaide and I've missed? Well shoot. I'll listen some more come March when Astor brings me home.

    Glad it wasn't a slight on the US as a whole!
    I just felt vaguely protective!

  • @francessmith  Feb 13

    Sorry to hear you can only record songs when you're alone.

    I hope we'll get a few more recordings from you during February, but if you can't do it, never mind.

    You could try 50/90, you don't have to do the whole three months.

    Hello Captain Illegible, I haven't seen a song by you for a few days, hope it's not too hot where you are, making you unproductive, as I've heard it's very hot in Australia, at the moment.

    I haven't posted a song myself for a few days either, but I always get stuck a couple of times during fawm, so I know why I've stopped.

    Thanks for listening & positive comments on my tune ‘song of hope ‘. Cheers

    Hello Captain Illegible, do I detect a profile pic change? are you going to come and fawm again this year? I will look forward to hearing whatever you come up with.
