Courtney's RPM Update #1

When I completed the RPM Challenge in 2013, it was one of the greatest feelings in my life. Last year, I thought I could do it again with no problem, but I couldn't carve out the time or effort to finish more than 1.5 songs. 

This year, i'm off to a bit of a late start, but I think I'm in the right gears and right mindset to get this done! 

So far I have one full song called Monster, and two half songs called On A Good Day and Token. Whenever I THINK about writing, I keep coming up with these really weak lyrics that sound like I'm high off the epiphany of "life is awesome!" I guess that's not a bad thing, but I'm trying to dig through old journal entries to find some ideas with more grit. 

I don't have any media or songs to attach to this post today, but I wanted to make an update just for the sake of it. I find that kind of mentality helps with getting RPM done; just sit down and don't give up until the song is done!

Also, another interesting thing I found is that my voice sounds very different than two years ago. Maybe I got used to hearing it in a different way, but the same mic I used two years ago sounds awfully nasal and bizarre. Weird? 

Hoping for another productive afternoon tomorrow. Maybe another full song!
