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 jimmyether 's LJ.  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.
Doooooooo you.... feel like I do?

Yep. I feel the same as you about this. Never heard about it until your post. But I am intrigued and feel like I want to do it. It's completely within my grasp: I've scored plays and dance shows with 45-60 minutes of music in less time. And this is even a leap year!

Let's go for it. I will if you will. Hell, I probably will even if you won't.
Oh, I'm gonna do it, I just need to hem and haw about it for a day. I'll most likely sign up tomorrow.
Yeahhhhh.... I'm gonna have to do it, too. Since my prior comment, I've already been inspired enough to create an identity and roughed out logo for my project.

I'm not really a songwriter, but I'll go for it. Man, I bet I'm going to create something sucky. Whatever. That beats creating nothing.

I noticed you posted this in your video game blog also. I'm not sure if this is intentional or not, but it strikes me as a tactic you're using against your future wishy-washy self: by writing about it, by telling other people you're going to do it, you set up a public shaming (albeit an extremely mild one) if you wuss out.

It's interesting to me because I'm lazy and a procrastinator, so I have to rely on tricks like these to get my future self to shut the fuck up and do the work.
