My 7th FAWM. That is so insane to say.
I moved to Chicago 6 years ago Feb. 1st, and on that day I joined FAWM for the first time as well. I met a lot of great people out of the gate in Chicago from this site, and it really taught me how to cope with transition and change. I continue to do this to dump a years worth of thoughts into one lovely month.
For the newbs, things to note:
1. Post your skeletons. Don't feel like you have to have a fully produced song ready. This site is for the bones.
2. Write bad songs. They will lead to good ones.
3. Be constructive with compliments and criticism. And maybe save that part for March. You need time to write!
