Results - Week 31

We are coming to the end of Season 10, and this week followed the pattern of close matches and sad results. But then again, as I've been saying, those are the only results that we ever have at this point.

We are losing one of the biggest supporters of Idol in the "modern era", and someone who has been a big supporter of her fellow competitors this season:

bleodswean

Thank you so much for all that you do to support Idol, and for writing some really cool stuff this season! Hope you had fun!

Season 10 for the win!!! 😉 What a stupendous season this has been! Just over ten months so far. That’s one hell of a lot of writing! I am beholden to my readers and thankful to those who have voted for my entries! This has been a really amazing group of writers and I am honored to have written side-by-side with all of you. It’s both thrilling and humbling to have made it so far. I’ve enjoyed reading the varied interpretations of the challenging prompts each week and truly admire the breadth of talent and skill that Idolars bring to the game. It’s going to be a formidable battle to the finish line!

I love therealljidol madly. I love the writing, the reading, the commenting, the prompting. I believe this is a wholly unique way to get writers writing and readers reading! I do believe in Idol as a skill-builder for all writers and encourage any of you who feel the same to consider becoming a patron to make it a bit easier for Gary to continue to offer this experience! I am looking forward to the future of Idol - the next step in this crazy dance party.

THANK YOU, Gary, THANK YOU, readers, and THANK YOU to my Muse!!! Be well!

Very very sad to see you go *huggles*. You are amazing, I look forward to your pieces every week, because they are absolutely inspiring and essential muse food. And also outside of the writing you bring so much to Idol with your interactions and support of everyone in the community.

So sorry to see you go! I thought this might be the season you won it all. :(

But I'm so pleased you came out and stayed with it, especially in such a terribly challenging year. Thanks for sharing week after week of wonderful stories with us. :)

Thanks, K! One of these seasons you or I will come sliding into homeplate and won't get tagged out!

It hasn't been an easy year, but I credit my "RL" issues with an experimentation in my writing and that has been worthwhile! I wrote several non-fic essays and that was a first! And definitely more than a handful of gritty realism...which was rewarding.

I am so sorry to see this! You are a truly outstanding writer, with a real gift. It has been a pleasure to read your entries, and I look forward to another season from you. In addition to the quality of your writing, you have contributed so much to Idol through your comments and support.

Oh, G, thank you so much! Your comments have been unwaveringly encouraging and I appreciate your words more than you know. We will have to form a mutual admiration society because I feel the EXACT SAME way about you, your writing, and your support of Idolars!

I am beyond words here. "Sorry to see you go," just doesn't cover it. You are a stellar writer! The maturity you bring to Idol in your writing and your presence raise the bar exponentially, your honesty and dignity as well as your creativity and skill are absolutely inspirational, challenged only by your kindness and generosity to the rest of us. I can't wait to read your words as you move on to your next venture. I have been told that in life there are winners and losers, you my friend are the very definition of a winner. It is an honour to know you.

Oh, M, thank you!!! I don't know how to respond to such a humbling and heart-warming message! Your support and encouragement over these past years has done more for my desire to improve my writing, my storytelling, my characterization than you can ever know. It's a rewarding thing to have someone cheerleading and championing! *HUGS*

I'm shocked by this. Not only is bleodswean one of the most imaginative, talented writers in Idol, but you're one of the sweetest people I've ever run across. I'm sorry to see you go.

Of all the results I expected to see, this was not one of them. bleodswean is a fantastic writer and a one of Idol's top cheerleaders. See you again in Season 11?

I really do feel like "luck of the draw" is the way to put this, as bleodswean consistently wrote such brilliant and wonderful stories, meticulously crafted and intricately woven... the bespoke of writing in LJ Idol.

Thank you! That is high praise and I'm using it as a sugarcube to sweeten my morning coffee! Now get back to your keyboard and slay this Idol dragon!

Awww, am sad you aren't there to win it all. I miss having the time to write. You a few others have taught me much. I'm proud to have written with you. Hopefully, next season we'll get to do it again without real life intruding. Hugs and thank you. Peace~~~D

Now, this was a kick in the shin. Bleodswean, it was an honor to write alongside you this long wild ride. You were definitely one of the writers who always thrilled me with your entries, and who's been a great motivator to keep writing. Thank you for all your talent and encouragement. I look forward to reading IT with you!
