I've gotta say, I'm very seriously considering doing the RPM Challenge this year (which is like NaNoWriMo, except for music).
And I have to say that instead of being frustrated, I'm instead rather amused at how much of a fuss my brain is putting up, as I sit here and dally and dither about. If I'm going to do it, I should just fucking DO it; I haven't even really come up with a good reason NOT to.
The only thing that comes up is that I literally just found out about this a day or two ago, after coming across it in a friend's blog. Everybody knows that November is NNWM... I didn't know that February was "Write And Record An Album Month". So part of my brain is going "I'm not ready yet, I'm not prepared to do this yet, I don't want to just jump in blindly." And the other part of my brain is saying, "You'll never be ready, you'll never be 100% prepared, so why the hell NOT just go for it?"
I'm sure I'll end up doing it. I just need to get used to the idea for another 24 hours, and then I'll go for it.
And then I'll bore you all to death.

The RPM Challenge
I'm crossposting this from my LJ, if only because (1) while videogames are a big part of my life and interest, music is really where it's at, and as such (2) if I end up doing this, I might not be posting here that much next month.
