Green Room - Week 1 - Day 12

Tonight is looming, like a big looming thing threatening to eat some of us.

Because that's what is happening.

The polls close tonight:

and at the end of it, two of your fellow contestants will be eliminated. Maybe someone you enjoy. Maybe you.

So if you have any last minute recommendations, or want to give some love to anyone who doesn't seem to be getting a lot of it, this is the time to speak up!

For those who survive, the new topic goes up tonight as well. (Technically, if you don't - there's always the Home Game, but that doesn't sound as final as the idea that you will be dropped into a pit of acid!!)

In the past, I've seen some surprising results in the first couple of weeks, people that I've thought had "no business" being eliminated. But that's what can happen - there is so much noise, that it's easy for something, or someone, to get lost in it. It's part of that struggle, to find a way to break out of it and get noticed!

So make sure to do your part to get the word out on YOUR favorites! (or even, if you think you are in actual danger this week, to make the case for yourself!)

Results - Week 1

One vote in Tribe 1.
Two votes in Tribe 2.

That is how close it was between who was staying and who was leaving. It's why it is important to make sure you cast a vote every week to keep your favorites in the running.

This week we are losing two veterans, and two friends of Idol. One has been around for awhile and the other coming back after a long absence:


Thank you so much to both of you for coming out this season. I hope we will continue to see you around!

The one piece of good news? There *will* be a Second Chance later this season. So please Home Game, and be on the look out for your shot to get back into the fray!

Topic - Week 2

We all have that person in our lives.

Maybe more than one of them in some cases.

You know who they are. You know what sorts of things that they do.

They are

That One Friend

and they are the topic this week!

The deadline to link your entry back to this thread is Sunday, Dec 4th at 3 pm EST

Work Room - Week 2

When I first heard that I would be writing a Work Room this week, I wasn't sure about what I was going to say. I sat down and I pondered the idea. What is a Work Room? Why did I need to write one? Work. In a room. A Room of Work.

I pondered until I couldn't ponder any more...

and then I deleted the first couple of paragraphs you just read and got right to the point with a stronger beginning.

There's a lesson in there. You only have a few moments to grab someone's attention. There is a lot to read, just in Idol - and a world of distractions. If you don't have a way to hook someone into wanting to read more, it doesn't matter how you close, because most people won't get there.

That's MY number 1 piece of advice going into Week 2.

What's yours?

The new topic is up:

and please make sure that you stop by the Results thread to say goodbye to those leaving us this week:
