Results - Week 7

When I announced that there were going to be 4 contestants leaving this week, I didn't know it was going to come down to only 1 of those spots being from the actual poll.

lawchicky sacrificed.
and there were 2 unrecorded "bye outs" that I am treating as sacrifices:
dreamsreflected and mossmonday

Which means there is only one more slot left.

We are saying goodbye to waveform_delta

Again, all veterans. I'm starting to wonder what the newbies are putting in the water!

Thank you so much to all of you for coming out this season, and I hope that we will see you in the Home Game - and in the upcoming Second Chances!

Work Room - Week 8

No Mentor this week.

But the new topic is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/977744.html

So this is definitely the space to talk about that, and perhaps hash some stuff out.

As I was about to post this, I encountered an article that made me think of a quite a few writers I've known over the years, and their struggles: https://writingcooperative.com/writing-through-depression-6042ed15e946#.huqqld43f

I was also saw something about "tips for writers". But the only one that I really thought was worth sharing (that wasn't completely cliched) was to KEEP PUSHING YOURSELF. Not just against the forces that make you want to not keep moving forward (see above) but also to be better, to take that limit of what you *think* you can do, and keep pushing at that wall until it breaks.

How are you going to push yourself this week?
