An album in a month - The 2011 RPM Challenge

janap (451953) writes "In January of 2008, I discovered the RPM Challenge through an article on Slashdot. What I read was this: "Record a whole album in the month of February. Just do it!" — Yea right, as if I'm able to do that...

But, in dire need of a creative kick in the butt, I decided to throw myself at the chance to prove myself, to myself. I came out at the other end of it a changed man, and I've been back for more of the same every year since. The sense of accomplishment that this little artificial deadline you impose upon yourself carries with it upon completion is incredible, and has to be experienced. By you? Yes, why not? Anyone can come up with an excuse to say no, so don't. Remember — this doesn't have to be "the" album, all it takes is "an" album. And there's a great community of peers to draw experience from, in blogs and boards at the site. Welcome!"

I wholeheartedly agree. The RPM Challenge is one of the best things you can ever do for yourself. Get out there and do it!
