Green Room - Week 22 - Day 11

Well, at least one part of my birthday went right!

Today is the final day for people to get in their votes for the main competition: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/784297.html

Tomorrow is the deadline to submit the first entry http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/783873.html /sign up for Last Chance Idol http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/782944.html

How did *your* weekend go?

Results - Week 22

This was really tight.

How tight? If I were to expand the perimeters by 4 votes, we would have 8 more people leaving. (beyond the limit. Even expanding to by 2 votes would put it over 10 people leaving (but adding 8 to the mix is more dramatic, and illustrates my point - so let's go with that!)

Even "the top" is pretty crowded, with the middle breathing down it's neck!

From a contestant only standpoint, it would appear that the field is pretty evenly matched as far as this week goes!

Unfortunately though, the nature of the game says that some people must leave us this week.

fortunately, there is Last Chance Idol that they can immediately jump into if they sign up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/782944.html and complete the first entry: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/783873.html

So, I'm really hoping that we will see them there, and that they can fight their way back into the mix!

With that said, it's time to post the names. I would say there are some "shockers" in the mix. Definitely not names that I was expecting to be saying today. But then again, the bottom changed hands so many times in the last 24 hours that I really wasn't sure how it was going to shake out!

Leaving us this week are:
emo_snal
furzicle
lapis_lazuli615
mstrobel
swirlsofblue
veronica_rich
xlovebecomesher

Thank you to all of you for coming out - and I hope to see you in Last Chance Idol! (especially a certain someone who is *really* close to hitting 100 Weeks!)

Work Room - Week 23

The new topic is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/785896.html

By this point, you should have a pretty decent idea of what you want to do, and how to accomplish it.

What have you done though that you have been pleasantly surprised has been so well received?

Or shocked that the general readership didn't seem to like better?

What surprises have there been in how other people appear to see your work, and how have you applied that (if at all) moving forward?
