Hi! I'm Wonder (she/they), a songwriter, producer, and twitch streamer in Phoenix, AZ. This is my second time doing FAWM! My first time was in 2021, and I had exquisite joy of participating and completing 50/90 in 2023.

Many of my songs reference my struggles with physical and mental health. I have long covid (though thankfully I have recovered enough to live somewhat normally!), C-PTSD, depression & anxiety, and body dysmorphia.

I pull much of my subject matter from autobiographical events, books, movies, and TV shows! My favorite contemporary authors are Neil Gaiman, Iain S. Thomas, S.J. Whitby, Maggie Stiefvater, and Suzanne Collins. I just finished watching the eerie limited series “Bodies,” and am currently guiltily rereading Sarah J Maas’s “Throne of Glass” series.

I'm excited to connect with the multitude of talented and thoughtful FAWMers out here! This is such a wonderful community.

Hi, hi! Thanks so much for the note on "Your Every Day!”

I haven't been very productive for the last 2 years in FAWM, but always participate in some way. I hadn't seen your name before, until you started hosting skirmishes
I am happy I "discovered " you this FAWM!
[avatar]
ah thank you so much for the kind words on "Reality" - so glad you like seeing the process too

Came to say I laughed out loud when I saw your comment on my song Wake Up - not because I didn't appreciate it (I absolutely did), but because I have found myself envious of every single set of lyrics you've put out this FAWM. A good reminder that we all have our own powerful gifts and sometimes what we appreciate in others is a reflection of ourselves. :)

Happy Valley Road and I-17 basically

I'm in Phoenix too!

I'd love a collab or meetup, what part of this crazy valley are you in?

Getting ready to participate in the skirmish you are hosting and I see you are in Phoenix too!! Yay for FAWMr's in Phoenix!

Thanks for all of your great comments! I actually am trying to do a quick mix and master within the skirmish time frame after I write the tune, though sometimes it ends up being a little longer than hour before it gets published... Writing lyrics can be such a struggle and the short skirmish time stops me from getting in my own head and trying to edit too much. Sent you a message if you want to collab 😀

Thanks for the kind comments! Much appreciated!

Thanks for the kind words on "Walls" - so glad that you enjoyed it!

Let me add my thanks for your comments on David's and my collab on Firefly! I couldn't be more pleased with what he did, and I'm glad you liked it, too. Thanks!

Haha, thanks for that! Must start putting together that online ‘how to sound good, but not quite good enough to make any money’ music course 😂. Seriously though, really appreciate the lovely comment. Need to catch up with your tunes, and no time like the present…

Heck yeah! Glad to see you back, Wonder!!

Oh my. Just checked out a live performance of Craig Carothers doing "Little Hercules" and I'm absolutely blown away. How can I not know him? Wonder, I'm weak in the knees to think I've reminded someone of a guy like this. A million thanks for that as well as for turning me onto an artist who is right up my alley.

Thank you most kindly, Wonder. I'll definitely have to check out Craig Carothers.

Thanks for your gracious comments on Today, Wonder! Hope the long Covid eases and you have a Wonder-ful FAWM 2024!

Hey Wonder! Thanks for stopping by my page, saying hi and for the follow. Looks like you and I were fawmlings together! And I'm also a theybie as well. 😊 I don't use they/them though.

Wow, so you're a long hauler as well. I've had neuromuscular stuff (muscle twitches and hand/foot cramping) as a result of covid from almost two years ago.. It finally began to dissipate a few months ago. So this year I felt like I could have fun and participate like I did my first two years but now... ugh. I'm so worried since testing positive today.

Anyway... thanks for stopping by. Muah!
