Well, when I first saw you, -- was looking at FAWMlings, well, now I'm glad I didn't post a "Happy FAWM2020!" like I do. I'm sure you would have understood.
Anyway, yes, do that album. And, keep in mind 5090 starts in July, -- it could be a good time to engage there as well.
Welcome to fawm! Writing can be SO therapeutic for traumatic situations.
Hey all! Because I write daily already I am going to try and challenge myself to make a cohesive album of 14 songs in this month. I am currently pregnant and we found out recently that there is a complication with the pregnancy that is putting our baby's life at risk. I am thinking of writing an album for our baby. It will be good therapy for me and it will keep my hope alive. Thoughts, positive vibes and prayers for our little one are appreciated.
One song a day for 7 years!!! 🤘
Mmmmh, Bad Shark is absolutely beautiful!
It’s a shame that there’s only 4 monthly on spoty, hopefully FAWM can change that. I really am looking forward to listen to your contribution.
Thx for the music Kelly.
Welcome to FAWM! 😀
You got me curious about Woodie Guthrie songwriting contest. Very impressive. I look forward to hearing what you create next month.
Hi Kelly, so nice to see new faces. Wow, uh, with seven years of writing a song per day you *probably* don't need a lot of encouragement. But we will give it to you anyway. 😀 Have a wonderful FAWM 2020.
Welcome to FAWM!
