Community description:Fun contest for songwriters.
They say that doing a little every day is the best way to keep up creativity. Well, what if you need a wee extra push to keep doing that? I know I do!!

The idea here is that you get two weeks to write and record a song on a certain subject or inspired by a given photo, video, poem, phrase, story, article, paragraph, a title or specific chord sequence/run of notes, maybe in a specified genre, etc, etc. It can be anything, so long as everyone has the same starting point.

At the end of the two weeks the community members vote for their favourite song and offer as much encouragement and constructive criticism as they are willing to give. The winner gets to pick the inspiration for the next song.

It does not matter if you only write a line or two. Who knows? Maybe that couple of lines will turn out to be the best song you ever write, once you have received some encouragement from your fellow community members! The level of your musicianship/singing is not important. It's the SONG we are interested in.

The main thing is to have fun and to WRITE SOMETHING, ANYTHING, whether it is a future classic or your first shaky attempt. The contest aspect is just for a little bit of extra motivation and not meant to be taken too seriously.
