Here’s how it works:
1. You’ll get a new song prompt each day
Each day, I’ll post a prompt inside the Facebook group in the wee morning hours (Nashville time). Come to the group and check out the prompt each day—this is what you’ll be writing from.
2. Write your song, FAST!
Write your song based on the prompt! The goal here is to write quickly, with little editing. Push yourself. It will be hard, but that’s why this is a challenge. Give yourself an hour, 30 minutes, all evening, or just your lunch break – but whatever you do, finish that song!
3. Share your song with the group
Come back to the Facebook group when it’s all finished and share with the class! The 5/5 group is a wonderful place to get vulnerable, receive feedback, and feel the rush of sharing a brand new tune.
This songwriting challenge is designed to help writers in these specific ways:
This challenge beats writer’s block.
When you’re writing to prompts, you don’t have to worry about coming in with an idea every. single. day for 5 whole days. Start with a prompt, and you’re off!
This challenge allows you to put your inner critic on mute.
What’s that? Inner critic doesn’t like this line? “SORRYY can’t hear you!” This challenge is fast paced, meaning your inner critic won’t have time to bark back about every little thing! It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you write quickly and with abandon.
This challenge is a safe space to make friends and share songs.
The challenge participants are really what makes this such an amazing place. You can feel good about coming here for feedback, friendship, and even finding trusted co-writers.
