I've signed up to FAWM, or February Album Writing Month to give it its full name. The idea is I have to write 14 songs in 28 days. I love music and have always enjoyed playing in a band, but writing songs is a bit of a departure for me: Back 10-15 years ago when I played in a band I had lots of ideas for songs, some of which I'd written odd bits of, but I don't think that in total there were 14 which I finished. Still, I like a challenge and after completing NaNoWriMo twice I thought I'd try something musical; it is after all more "me" than writing prose.

You can see my progress here, including lyrics for the songs I've finished and in some cases demos. Please send me comments if you listen to them. And before anyone says it, I'm definitely not planning on giving up the day job!

This is SO exciting! I'm coming back to actually listen when it's not 1:20am my time, because I really should be in bed. I wouldn't have taken you for a Metallica/Iron Maiden type of guy. Aren't you interesting!

I think there is promise in there. I hope you will re-record and re-eq it so it doesn't sound sound quiet and so muffled. I quite like "if this is freedom...", but your voice needs to be turned up rather than hanging in the background.
