Work Room - Week 23

I said it in the Topic post: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1028263.html

Which you haven't read it when I'm writing this, but I wanted to say it again:

"I've been saying this for awhile, but seriously - this is the point in the competition where you need to bring your "A-game" every week. Anyone can go at any time!"

There were 6 votes between being eliminated and the person with the most votes this week.

Let me say that again - 6 more people voted for the entry with THE MOST votes than did for one that sent someone home.

That is why it's important to spread the word, and that is why it's important, each and every week, to bring all you've got, because you may not have a "next week".


There are 3 choices this week for your topic - which one are you leaning toward, and why?

I feel like there's a joke here about everyone picking "lethargy," and that's why there are no replies.

Ooh, and just before I hit "post" I realized there's another joke here about everyone thinking there was no possible reply to that question.

...but I think going with either of those two prompts would be backing the wrong horse.

More choices? It makes things harder, not easier. Right now I'm leaning toward throwing some things in frustration but I'll get over it.

Cosmopsis - the paralyzing problem of too many choices.

Here's what I did, it may work for some of you. I wrote the three prompts down on slips of paper, put them in a hat, shook them up, and picked ONE.

NOW I can focus...

That's a great idea! Sadly, I don't think it would work for me. I'm always second guessing my decisions. Like as I was writing this I got an idea for Lethargy when I was pretty much decided on The Bannister Effect. I'm always so afraid I'll be Backing The Wrong Horse with all these choices. :-(

Besides, I am still in shock. I can't make decisions when I'm in shock. Well, I can. They just wouldn't be the right ones.

What's happened???

I have to narrow my choices to one or I will be frozen and with this long weekend in the US, I can't afford that....I have to start seeding the prompt NOW.

I hear you! I do! We have our big Canada-turns-150 on Saturday. I should start today, too.

I'm in shock because...I'm still here!!!!!!

So what do you do for Open Topics, which are unlimited choices?
Jul. 2nd, 2017 04:44 pm (UTC)
Oh, Open prompts are easy! I love them! I always have something on the brain needles...or I go to my Word file with all my current obsession topics and choose one of those.

For me...I want to write explicitly to the Idol prompt, so I can't have two or three working at one time. I need to have one prompt to focus on.

Since there's no green room yet. 

My computer is 1000% dead.  Im doing this on my phone which even with an official app isnt really good.  Especially editing. 

Thats the screen.  The f1: boot then tries to boot off the network card.  I also have a usb return to factiry settings, but that would be like giving amnesia to a coma patient.

So hopefully ill be back up and creating a post by deadline or ill be writing something on here that will be be very bad.  Or both or neither.

Hope the rest of you are doing better.   I had an awesome Friday and Saturday before this.
