2021 note: I think I might be back this year. Hi friends 😀
American in Germany - she/her

I've been writing songs since I was about eight, and have hundreds of them by now, more than two decades later. I've been doing FAWM (more or less) every year since 2006, and wrote twenty-eight songs my first year instead of fourteen.
And right now, on the cusp of my umpteenth FAWM, I have no idea how to write a song.
This is nothing new. I feel this way every time I finish a song. I feel this way at every moment when I'm not actively writing a song. And honestly, if I stopped to think about it, I would probably even feel this way WHILE I'm writing a song.
Every time, I'm starting from scratch. Every time, I'm back to square one. With every song I manage to achieve, I'm reinventing the wheel. Reinventing the will.
But where there's a will, there's a way. And somehow, the songs keep happening.
Welcome (back), friends and FAWMers!
Thanks a million for your comment on my lyrics for "Ships of Sand" -- I'm blushing... 😀
Thanks for listening!
Hey Jinx! I guess I'm not really back but I do come around to listen to tunes. Maybe I'll get my recording setup running at some point, but who knows. I'm glad to see you're back at it!
Good to hear from you Jinx...I'll be stopping by! 😎
Oh yes, please be back! I can't wait for your songs! 😀
Jiiiinx!! So good to see you back here! I've been living vicariously through all your Germany stories; I miss Europe so much and I can't wait to get back so I find your tales of German bureaucracy oddly comforting 😁
Hi Jinx! Thanks! it's nice to hear that you are a fan! Which song can you remember? Maybe I already released it officially! I have 13 songs out! Have a lovely fawm! Gonna check your song now I see you have your first
I'm here, I'm writing! I stay pretty quiet every year until my first one is out! 😀 Happy FAWM!
Thanks for the comment on my song Flutter! Happy FAWM to you!
Aww shucks. Thank you friend 😀. Happy FAWM.
Oh, nice to see a fellow Berliner here! Wishing you a great FAWM!
You, too, Jinx. Here's to another great year.
I appreciate it!
Heya, gutes fawmen, liebe Jinx. Freue mich auf deine Songs
Hey Jinx! Here's to writing some great songs and having fun while doing it.
Thanks! Great to se you here and I am looking forward to listening to your songs! 😀
Cool, I told Orlando about you, and messaged you each other's Facebook profiles.
Hey Jinx - and to you! Have a splendid FAWM 😀
Huhu, Jinx! Ein ganz wunderschönes FAWM wünsche ich dir!
Hi Jinx. Ready to roll?
Hi hi hi! I forgot you were in Berlin. Did I introduce you to my tuba-playing friend Orlando yet?
Heyyyy! Thanks for checking in. So glad that you liked that first one I made.
Hehe one of said fuckers was called Morph, so immediately sprang to mind from that title! But glad it holds up without that knowledge, I try to keep things accessible for people without nostalgia for weird plasticene people 😀
