Today is February 1st which means that FAWM 2018 has kicked off for another year.

“What is FAWM 2018?” I hear you ask… Well, FAWM stands for February Album Writing Month and this songwriting challenge dares its participants to write 14 songs (an albums worth of material) in 28 days.

Personally, this is my 10th FAWM that I’ve been involved in but I’ve managed to fully complete the challenge only once, in 2017. It’s definitely a challenge even for an experienced songwriter like myself.

For me, FAWM is one of the best ways that I know to supercharge your songwriting process and to keep the creative momentum going.

By joining the FAWM community you tap into an extremely positive, interactive, vibrant and encouraging group of songwriters whose only goal is to help each other (as well as themselves) write as many songs as they can within the timeframe allowed.

I’m going to be tracking my FAWM progress on Corey Stewart Online (my personal website) however, on this blog, All About Songwriting, I’m going to be uploading relevant content designed to encourage, inspire and greatly help you in your quest to write songs. If you are thinking of joining FAWM for this year then click on this link.

Now, to kick things off, here is a link to an earlier post I made which is a essentially a BIG list of songwriting prompts and lyric generators.

Songwriting prompts and lyric generators are very handy tools for challenges like FAWM because they allow you to start things off without having to think about how to start things off and of course, overthinking things is one of the great ways to create a songwriters block for yourself.

Go to my previous post “The BIG List Of Songwriting Prompts And Lyric Generators” and check out the links provided to see if they do anything for you. If you have found them to be helpful to you please let me know… I’d love to hear about it.

I wish everyone who is participating in this years FAWM all the very best.

Until next time, keep on writing,
