One last Super Skirmish on the last weekend of 50/90 for those who want and need to write more, and for those (like me) who can't seem to stop writing.
What is a skirmish? A timed writing session to a prompt. What is a super skirmish? A series of skirmishes, usually over a weekend. This video (by long time FAWM/5090'er) @plainwhitetoast helps explain a skirmish and super skirmish. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMO6lNRkRFI
Similar to the second weekend in July super skirmish, spread out over three days, in historic more active posting times, and ending with the traditional Sunday 3pm EDT skirmish by @corinne54 . This schedule includes a couple of repeated questions and lessons learned from scheduling for July. Trying something a bit different to include breaks for the hearty souls that want to skirmish all weekend. I encourage people who are willing to host multiple times.
Here is a suggested schedule. As always I am welcome to corrections on the labeling, time zone times, and tagging nomenclature. The schedule is subject to change depending on whoever wants to volunteer to host and when, and with placeholders every two hours for those who want to host during the initial scheduled breaks.

Please post each individual skirmish above as a separate forum topic under "5090 Community > Song Skirmishes". Feel free to use the example template below, or modify to your choosing:
[Suggested Forum Topic Subject >] Super Skirmish A: Friday 9/25, 10 am PDT, 1 pm EDT, 5 pm GMT, 6 pm BST; Saturday 9/26, 3 am AEST
[Suggested Forum Topic Body >] A "Skirmish" is a group songwriting sprint. A time is announced, a writing prompt given, and then everyone has 1 HOUR to write a song. After you finish your song upload it, then post a link to it in this thread below. Part of the fun is to listen to and comment on the other participants songs. If it takes longer than an hour, or if you start late, then please post the song and comment anyway. The main goal is to encourage each other to write new songs that would not otherwise exist while having fun. The writing prompt will be posted here at the announced start time.
