per month


I’m Timmy, songwriter, creative maven and founder of the Fearless Songwriting Challenge.
The Challenge is simple:

1. Sit down to write a song in about 45 minutes.

2. Let go, say something CRAZY. 

3. Use the last 15 minutes of the hour to make a recording as a artifact of what was claimed from the unknown.

Said another way the challenge is to: find your edge and lean forward, afraid of falling but fall anyway. It's to jump out of the plane of everyday thoughts with no parachute and nothing to hang onto. The good news is there is no ground. Eventually you'll come home to your senses and you'll have a new song.

We like to be in control. We don't like madness or frenzy, and we hate letting go. The Fearless Challenge isn't about letting go. It's about finding out what happens when we go a little (or a lot) crazy. The challenge isn't about anyone's precious egos or liking what is written today. It's about writing seven days straight, and looking back after saying, holy excrement, where did THAT come from?

This is the Patreon that gives me your support as someone who takes part in the challenge, or as a curious bystander who loves the work The Fearless Challenge adds to the world. The Fearless Challenge is always free of charge, but I whole-heartedly and gratefully accept monetary support when people feel moved to offer it.

My goal is to build a thriving community of writers, musicians and creators who are committed their work.  When we hit twenty five community members I'll start a monthly hang for whoever can make it on Google Hangouts or Messenger.  We'll check in, talk about what's going on for us.  Maybe even share a song or two if there's time.
