Shit just got real. I’ve signed myself up for the RPM songwriting challenge. I would have signed up earlier this month but I only just found out that it existed today. The challenge is for songwriters to create either 10 songs or 35 minutes of original music. I discovered this challenge at a convenient time. I was already planning on writing and recording a 5-song EP on an iPad as a creative exercise for one of my grad school classes. In my brain, I was able to justify to myself that writing five more songs wouldn’t be a big deal. We’ll see how that pans out. I have a lot going on this month with teaching, being a student, recording, renovations, and being a husband. I’m hoping to get off to a strong start this weekend.
