Well the oldest surviving thread dates back to Nov 11th 2003, Year 2 Week 2 - although some "Guest" managed to borrow a time machine and post comments on the 1st of Jan 1970. I'm next in line for it - next week's lottery numbers, here I come!
So I deduce, Watson, that Year One, week one would be around early Nov 2002 - six years in real time. Hey, the baby's growing up, Nick - it'll be at University before you know it!

3. to force yourself to think creatively in new ways.
4. to stretch your mind and writing beyond your comfort zone.
5. to exchange ideas, tips and encouragement with other writers.
The objectives are not:
1. to write commercial songs
2. to write polished songs
