I need this now...Ira Glass

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”

I am not really fighting my way through FAWM, I am enjoying it....But if I start reading other peoples lyrics or listening to their songs, I start to doubt myself....The good thing about this songwriting challenge is that it doesn't leave much time to think about others because you are too busy writing the songs and recording them and networking on the Fawm site....

Here is my page on the Fawm site...I think you can listen to the songs without signing on to the site...
These are demo songs...not fully polished....quick!  one a day for me!   and on a very very simple (compared to some !!) iPad app, not a proper recording studio...
