Work Room - Week 18

This Work Room is a little different in that it's not just the place to talk about approaches for this week's topics, it's also a good place to come to find a partner. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1014004.html

For those who have never been through an Intersection before, this is the time to explore that writing isn't completely solitary. Having someone who is there to help you through the process, encouraging you - that can often elevate your work.

There was a classic Idol example of someone who let's just say has "struggled" in the past. She isn't around this season, but if she wanted to show up in the future, she has a great spirit about it and is always improving, so that would be great.

She ended up being Intersection partners with one of the strongest writers from that season. It was easily the best thing she'd ever written for Idol hands down. That was much earlier in that season, and there really isn't anyone who fits that bill around right now. BUT it's the same principle.

Do your entries have to be connected to each other?

They can be. But they don't have to be.

How much, or little, you interact with your partner is entirely up to you. The only rule is that you have to have one and that one of you has to do Topic 1 and the other has to do Topic 2. Everything else is entirely up to the two of you to figure out!

NOTE: Topic 2 has changed. Please be aware of that.

Oh dear.

Well, here we go. I'm in need of a partner. PM me if you're interested? :)

edit: and fodschwazzle wins the race by a whopping two minutes!

Thank you to everyone else who sent me a message. I'm glad to know that intersections are just as terrifying as I remember.

Looking for partner. I have an idea for Where I'm From.

But, kinda don't want to share the world that I've been writing in. So, if that's cool with you and you have ideas for Location, hit me up.

Just making it official:
shadowwolf13 and I have teamed up... so we're both off the market.
May. 12th, 2017 02:13 am (UTC)
I am also in need of a partner! If there is anyone who would like to partner up, PM or just comment here. I love everyone left, and I can work with either topic!

I'm in need of a partner. I'm flexible on topic, as well. :)

We're doing "Where I'm From" again? That was the prompt for Week 7. I am confused.

I don't really know anyone here that well. I guess in my quest for a partner, I'll say up front that I'd rather write for the new topic, "Location, Location, Location," instead of try to come up with a second thing for the prompt we did already.

I'm not sure what to say about trying to inter-relate entries. I tend to brainstorm for a long time and then end up writing kinda close to the last minute. If there's someone who writes their entries earlier I could try to include some element of theirs when I eventually write mine?

I don' t know. This is all weird and new to me.
May. 12th, 2017 02:32 am (UTC)
You're right. That's what happens when I cut and paste and don't recheck the list. It had gotten moved up to Week 7 and I didn't delete it from Week 18!

I put the correct topic in the post.

Anyone want to partner up? Edited to add that I'm flexible on the topic and or style. Both topics have potential.

Hands up...
who ever wants to dance the night fandango with me.

I'm best reached at

or come find me on twitter at @reidhcooper

You're choice. I got nothing for either prompt and yet something for both. By that I mean... if you really want to see me personal one of the two will do it... if you want me to be that journalistic freak, that too.

I'm gonna let you choose... whoever partners up.
May. 12th, 2017 03:22 am (UTC)

Hit me up. Partner search is on!

Edited to add.. You can also find me as Misty Kall Franklin on Facebook... :) I do all the things there.

Are you still looking for a partner? I haven't brainstormed yet, but I am leaning toward "The distance between us." Feel free to PM or reply here :-)

Anyone looking to partner, please PM me! I'm available. Hugs and hoping someone will soon! Peace out~~~

Am off the market for a partner. Murielle has claimed me as her second. Btw- we need someone to keep a og of partnerships so we know who is taken or open, and so we can make sure someone doesn't get left dangling on the line.. I volunteer anyone but me! Hehehehe hugs and peace out! And yes- i'm really awake at this hour but am about to drop. G'night! Hugs
