FAWM over for 2013-lots of winners!

This year's February Album Writing Month (FAWM) was very productive for me and many others on the site. I wrote 17 songs and I think I could have done more, but 17 is a good prime number. This is my 6th FAWM and this year, I actually wrote songs that might fit together on an album. If you do FAWM often enough, you can learn to do that and you are not worried about meeting the goal of 14 songs. You know you will get there if you wish and you just need to decide on your journey path. 

I was a bit more on the periphery this year than I usually am. I didn't do any of the songskirmishes and I didn't particiate in a song morph (I did both the songskirmish and morph exercises last year). I was fairly quiet on the FAWM Forum boards and most of what I did when I visited the site at FAWM.org besides putting up my songs, I listened to several others, old and new alike. The veterans like Steffan Pitzel, Phil Norman, Nancy Rost, Deborah Linden, Errol Elumir, Calum Carlyle and a few others from the UK who I mostly know by their site names (adforperu, oddbod, vom vorton, hoopshank, orinoco) are sounding as good or better than ever. The new young talent is getting more impressive. The new design for the site was very attractive and easy to navigate. I missed having the Jukebox around but I used the FAWM Forum Recommendations thread to find interesting songs. The site will be up for at least another two months so anyone reading this can go and check it out (again, FAWM.org). Participation is encouraged, the more, the merrier.

We are getting steadily more participation from Boston area folks. I am the organizer once again for the FAWM over party at Bloc 11,Somerville, Mass, Sunday March 10th at 4;30 pm. There were just three of us last year, but we had a great time. This year, maybe 10 people? That would be really nice. 

Looking forward to the next three months during which I have an appearance at a songwriters' night, 4 Corners at Mediator Stage in Providence (3/14), hosting a Songwriters' Night at my home base, Catbird Cafe in South Weymouth on 4/26 and then sharing a concert stage with my long time friend, PJ Rogue the following Friday 5/3 at Catbird Cafe. I will be busking at the Marshfield Fair later in the summer (thank you, Andrew Lewis). Other opportunities and announcements to come. I submitted to the Kerrville Folk Festival: maybe I will be going there, too.

Quotes Chimp is frequently overlooked, because life assurance policy isn't needed for legal reasons. As it's vital for every single household to hold life assurance policy on anybody who plays a role in the household's financing, this is really a significant monetary error. With No correct degree of life assurance policy, the passing of a subscriber to your own household's earnings can cause losing of a property or hundreds of bucks with debt that can't be readily compensated.
