I'm a profoundly deaf songwriter based in the NSW Central Coast of Australia since 2008.
I write all kinds of songs and am of the belief at a well written lyric can fit any genre.
Thanks to online songwriting challenges, such as FAWM and 50/90, my writing has grown in leaps and bounds.
Like anything, you can only get better with practice and these challenges certainly help produce the numbers.
By writing often and regularly I've learnt how to write under pressure, build my songwriting muscles and put the inner critic away.
In 2017 I discovered two FB groups called: "The Songwrite Inn" (UK) and "5 in 5 Songwriting Challenge" (Nashville).
Look them up when you get a chance. Lots of little songwriting challenges to keep you creative and busy!
