This challenge destroys 💥 writer’s block.

This challenge will kickstart your inspiration and get you writing. Fast.

You don’t have to come with ideas – we got the prompts!

I got you covered – each day, we’ll all be writing to pre-made songwriting prompts. You don’t have to wait for a great idea to come to you.

We’re a fantastic community of hundreds of amazing SongFancy songwriters.

The 5 in 5ers are an amazing bunch of songwriters. We support each other, collaborate, and offer feedback and encouragement. You’ll feel like family when you join! I can’t wait to meet you. :)

It’s so fast, your inner critic doesn’t have time to think.

This is a fast-paced, speed songwriting challenge. You’ll have 24 hours to write a complete song. The best way to do that is to sit down and knock it out in 30 mins – 1 hour, or write it in the gaps of your day.

Does any of this sound like you?

  • You’re feeling uninspired and need some new ways to approach songwriting.
  • You feel like you’re writing in a vacuum and really wish you had like-minded people to share your work with.
  • You want to get good. FAST.
  • Your negative internal dialog has gotten out of control, and you really want to prove your inner critic wrong.
  • You want to kick bad habits out of the writing room.
  • You have an EP, show, tour, or other project coming up that needs a lot of songs.
  • You’re a poet or a singer and have never written a song before, and want to try it in a safe space!
  • You like a challenge. 🤘
