My first attempt at the February Album Writing Month challenge (www.fawm.org). You're supposed to write fourteen songs in the month of February. I wrote... five. Almost had six, but it didn't take. More remarkably, though, I think they're actually all maybe not terrible, and I don't know that I've EVER written that many songs in a row that maybe aren't terrible. Your mileage may vary, admittedly...

These are all first take recordings, so some have decidedly incorrect chords and muffed lyrics; even in the couple weeks since I wrote them, some have already been refined or altered; some may, in time, be revealed to be much weaker than I think they are and scrapped for parts (or taken out back and shot). But maybe when #JHSophomoreRecord starts to take shape, some of these tunes will be on the list.
