2019: This will be my ELEVENTH 50/90. I likely won't be too active this time around. Lots of editing work on the agenda, plus I'm busy with art- and art-jewelleryrelated stuff.
But I'll swing by to post a few challenges, listen to/read what others are creating, and - I suspect - to throw in a handful of lyrics. It's hard to resist the skirmishes.
Wishing everyone heaps of FUN & INSPIRATION as we play in this wonderful, magical sandbox where everyone giggles and shouts and throws their songwritery toys around, and nobody gets hurt.
Disclaimer: Collaborations are welcome during 50-90 under the agreement they will not be considered joint works. All contributions (music/melody/lyrics) will be individually owned unless other agreements are made in advance (which will include pieces being open for submission to licensing libraries for commercial use).
Thus, a composer is free to use the music for another project, post-Challenge, and - because I invariably re-write my lyrics extensively - I may want to take the lyric in a different musical direction. (In any case, please always ask for permission to use a lyric.) Thank you.
Also, please keep all 50-90 collaborations within 50-90 walls. If you have any questions, please PM or email me.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 30: Well, a strange thing happened on the way to the 50-90 this year! LOL
I was waylaid by other matters, mainly to do with an over-abundance of work, plus trying to keep churning out the jewellery I've been making (and - luckily - selling). Did a LOT of revising of older lyrics, but didn't write any new ones. Ah well.
But roll on FAWM, which in any case is my favourite of the two Challenges! I hope to see a lot of you folks there in 5 months.
Congratulations to Everyone who lasted the distance this year. Well done.
