Welcome, friends, to FAWM 2021! I'm SO excited for this writing frenzy to start. I've been moving around a bit and working long hours, which will make for even more of an adventure. The time may be short, and the space may be cramped, but spending this strange February with y'all is what I'm living for.
And I'm totally down for a collab if you are, so just say the word!
Steph is a novel writer, of the YA Fantasy variety, and a lifelong competitive jump rope athlete. When it comes to music, she tends to write on guitar or ukulele (pianos are a bit difficult to transport) and is always on board with a clever lyric and a catchy melody.
FOR CLARIFICATION PURPOSES: My recording setup is pretty much no setup. Tech has improved, but I would still like to pre-apologize for any butchering of instrument sound qualities, and if it ever sounds like I added effects to ANYTHING, this is either a trick, which should not be trusted, or an attempt to improve whatever horrible take I got stuck with; trust me, you're better off with this than the original. (This warning has been provided for your convenience.)
Dang, thanks for the nice comment a while back. I kinda forgot about FAWM until the last minute. So, we'll see what happens!
Thank you for listening and for your encouraging comments on Primrose! I am delighted that it seemed to meet my style goals!
Thanks for busting my Zong! I'm really glad you liked it 😀
Hi Steph! Thanks for the reminder—I'd forgotten it was February already! I decided not to do FAWM this year but as soon as I'd said it, my friend convinced to do some collabs soooo 😀
Hey Steph! Just 1 week till FAWM!
With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.
"Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.
But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every minute/hour/day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a minute/hour/day/week/month/year invested in contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.
Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
