For those of us looking to continue songwriting in a similar supportive environment there is the:
Facebook Skirmish Group, which provides a weekly prompt and to write in an hour or so (honor system) and we supportively comment on each others songs. If you are on Facebook and interested, message me and I can send you an invitation to join.
National Solo Album Month (NaSoAlMo) happens in November, I have participated the last four years and apparently I am still a mod there. There is more information here : https://www.reddit.com/r/NaSoAlMo/
Another thing I do is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), also in November. The last two years I have done both NaSoAlMo and NaNoWriMo. This year I will definitely do still do NaSoAlMo since I have more songs to write and use that as a vehicle to finalize some recordings (over the 29 minute minimum). I will also do NaNoWriMo, but as a rebel, not aiming for the 50k word count, but you never know.
I know there are other writing groups and certainly I can write solo. How about your writing plans?
