February Album Writing Month

We seem to be on a roll here, finding a variety of innovative ways to ignite the creative spark and get us out of writer’s block. The latest is February Album Writing Month or FAWM.

Each February, FAWM.ORG forges a collaborative community where musicians of all walks and skill levels write an album’s worth of material in the shortest month of the year (roughly one tune every other day). Hundreds of musicians join in for this high-velocity and crazy-fun musical collaboration every year.

So-called “fawmers” are a motley mix of music professionals, students, homemakers, and folks who work dayjobs but rock nightclubs. In addition, FAWM sponsors other songwriting exercises, such as the 50 song challenge.

    I did FAWM for the first time this year and I loved it so much, I’m now in the midst of 5090 FAWM (50 songs in 90 days) – Not going to manage that, but between the two challenges, I’ve written 20 songs so far. I never thought I could write quality and/or fun songs so quickly. I recommend the site very highly to any songwriters out there. The people on the board are incredibly supportive, helpful, talented and fun. It’s contagious – and addictive!
