Writing Direct Into FAWM Add New Song Form

Skip to the bottom

  • @ustaknow Feb 19

    This premise came to me after reading how another wrote so many songs, -- no, not doing "this" (they just wrote allot 😀 ).

    Then I thought well, I'd have thousands of songs if wrote direct into the "Add New Song Form" FAWM form. And..., we don't want that! 😉

    So, in combining what I do anyway,
    --- my morning 5 min writes and the "TalkToDeath" challenge in the Forums
    I'd slowed myself down combining all three. And maybe others would think it fun too, -- just write direct flow of thought 5 mins into the Form and hit Add It!

    The premise here its, tag, ? maybe there's better ? [WriteDirect].

    I think if put any from of WriteDirectSongForm, DirectSongForm one may get a hit, like with the Acoutic tags, acoustic usually gets'em all. The Tags here are so hard to remember. And remember the " # " won't be there after you hit save, so not sure why folks comment that.

    -- Remember that the "conversations with death" has that different Tag [TalkToDeath]. Combine any tag you like, -- but if wrote direct into FAWM... well, give it a try! This is the place to do it.

    Anyway, since now February 19th, and one can see, or I can, as of the 14th, -- activity falls off, do a Lyrics (only? no demo? as you like) Direct into the song form, and tag it.

    It could give a boon to the Lyric only writers, and that's a good side effect too! 😀

    Or not. We shall Sea 😉 then saw.

    So again, this is separate from the other 😀 but may not be, as you like,

    [WriteDirect]

    I'm not good with Rules, so whatever you decide will be fine I am sure 😀 Or not! 😉

    All of mine are combined with [TalkToDeath] and what I do anyway, my Mourning-morning-writes, my daily 5 min news headline morning write right rites 😀

    So derUgo!

    Well, I usually just copy/paste the text from my other document into the "Add New Song" form and it keeps that process pretty streamlined... but maybe that extra overhead is why I'm only at 7 songs so far this month and you have 11. I've been wasting precious seconds with the Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V and all this switching between browser tabs!

  • @ustaknow Feb 20

    @owl 😀 hahhh, yes.

    It's an unusual thing direct in, not the same.

    -- I only did the ones indicated. For me, it's like when I tell/told students to Paint on Gesso'd Brown Paper Garbage Bag paper (wow, that's dating oneself 😀 ) ... anyway... ALWAYs ? it seems the painting on the "garbage bag" so to speak was their Best "Painting", and not the $20 pre-stretched canvas, pre primed and etc. Direct in the same? Who knows, it could be freeing. It is for me.

    I think when one really says, I don't give a sheit, writes and saves and comes back, they are not disappointed.

    Me, -- I have to use commas and other to remember the rhythm, spoken word syntax or will wonder what the heck I was thinking even later in the day. But as out of joint as some read, when I "get" that rhythmic-melody back in memory for those words, the music..., well, does not write itself, but has a starting point of "sense" with the lyric.

    -- I've known Lyric only folks who never think, - they can hum a melody and speak what they hear it as (into an mp3 file to upload "here"?), and can make for an easier collab, -- but that's a side note to this.

    I try to read as many lyric only as I can, -- but, that's not saying much 😀 hahhh! As they say, the "road to hell if paved with good intentions" 😀

    I often write direct especially near the end of Fawm when I’m just commenting as I’ve made my 14 ! Often while reading others lyrics I have a moment of inspiration click add new and minutes later I have lyrics...... often the music has to wait till 5090 but sometimes it flows too

    @aneil - I just learned, speaking of #14, the whole "collab" thing here was first brought up, introduced, to be engaged after the 14 was done. Interesting, or to me it is.

    I guess if one may not get to 14 or care to, the whole thing evolved to how it is now, -- makes sense, works 😀

    Interesting stuff!

  • @dzd  Feb 21

    Might do this just to hit 14 😀
    Probably wont have much time to record anything else, maybe next week.
    Probably a pretty freeing exercise anyway
    Ive tried writing the news but I can't watch the shit long enough lol
