Yesterday, besides being Valentine’s Day, also marked the halfway point (day 14 of 28) of the FAWM Songwriting Challenge.
After uploading five new songs in the first week I only managed to upload another two making my total of seven songs so far which is still keeping up with the one song every two days on average needed to complete the challenge in full.
I’m still confident I’ll complete the challenge as I’m becoming more and more comfortable with solo songwriting again especially the lyric writing component. FAWM has certainly given me the confidence to not be afraid of words anymore.
I always believe there’s something magical about a creative process where a songwriting idea coming from nowhere becomes a completed song and the time it takes to do that seems to disappear.
The main challenge I’m finding with doing FAWM so far, has been trying to grab those moments to write and record my songs the way I want to in-between a pretty demanding and unpredictable day gig however, my time management skills are getting better plus, it helps that the activity I’m trying to make time for (songwriting) is something I’m really passionate about.
Here’s to another week of kicking creativity in the butt and getting on with the task of writing some more songs.
