HOST: Amanda West

THEME: Fairies

TAGS: #skirmish #skirmishJ8a #fairies

WHAT: We'll have a 1 hour song skirmish and it will go something like this:

1) At the start of the event, I'll announce a theme for your inspiration.

2) All participants write, record and post a song within an hour. (Lyrics-only posts are also absolutely fine. And if you take longer than an hour, PLEASE post anyway. There are no 50/90 police!)

3) Participants share links to their songs. Fun and embarrassment ensue. But most importantly, everyone has one more song!

Be sure and tag your song and also post a link to it in this thread.

If you participate, please listen to (or read) and comment on the songs of the other skirmish participants. (That's part of the fun!)

Good luck and enjoy!

P.S. If you can't start at the announced time, you can still participate. Just post your song written within the hour after you start.

Love, peace and sláinte

I'm in!

Quite possible.

Here's hoping, is it 3pm EDT (my time), noon PDT (^^^^^^^^ time)?

I'm hoping, too! Working on my bucket list for 5090! Biggrin

Hopefully will be able to join.

I'll be late- Ollie has a vet appointment at 11 am PDT. Not sure I can make it home in time.

What's the topic? ... Smile

@Amanda West - feel better, hon!

Thank you @cts Smile

I can say with complete confidence that I would never have written a song with the theme 'fairy' in my life without this prompt, so thank you, @Amanda West! Here's mine: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/21269

Thanks for the skirmish, @Amanda West!

I'm not good at following directions...

Here is mine:
Thank you for the inspiration Amanda and good luck with everything!

I have one right here:


This one was a bit tricky for me @Amanda West because all my fairy knowledge comes from the Dresden files, where fairies are scary.

Why do I keep missing all of these skirmishes Sad

Oh man, SO annoyed I missed this skirmish. )-: Love the topic though, so will likely do a 'private' skirmish with it later.
