FAWM: 14 Songs in a Month Challenge for 2013

I’ve decided to take up the February Album Writing Month challenge again this year.  Even though the month is already started, I highly recommend you take part if you’d like a push in your songwriting productivity.

Last year, I found this exercise helped get me into a solid daily songwriting routine.  And if you write a song every day, that’s 365 a year.  There are sure to be some gems in there.

You can listen to my progress here.  If you want to take part but don’t know where to start, why not try out some of the songwriting exercises or avant-garde techniques from this site?  Be sure to let me know so I can link to any songs you base on these exercises.

His day job is as an academic philosopher, and in his spare time he writes fiction and brews beer. Most recently, he's started studying the fine art of the cocktail. So far he's finding that the principles of balance in drink mixing aren't completely unrelated to the principles of balance in songwriting.

  1. Awesome! I set myself a “song a day” challenge in June 2011 and it was one of the best things I ever did, creatively speaking. Will be sure to check out some of your songs 🙂

    1. Yeah, it really gets you into a great writing routine. It’s also interesting to see how quickly your songwriting skills can develop when you focus on the process of writing every day.
