Green Room - Week 12 - Day 9

Today will mark the end of the Idol road for some in the main competition and the beginning of the next chapter in the quest to get back into the hunt for others

So make sure your voice is heard!

What have you read that makes you go - EVERYONE should be reading this!! Especially if you look at the poll and see that it doesn't have "enough" votes? It's a closed community vote, so the numbers are going to be a little different. In theory, they shouldn't be. Because anyone can sign up and join the community. But there are always people who don't do that. Which is why it's interesting to narrow things down a bit. it's kind of like how Gary-only voting is going to be awesome when it finally happens!!! :)


How are you doing today?

Anyone watch Survivor last night? If so, how are you doing today? ;)

Vote - Second Chance Idol - Week 3

A few words from clauderainsrm:

The Week 3 poll of Second Chance Idol is here.

They are operating without a safety net with one goal in mind - getting back into the game! From what I’ve seen, I think those who survive this are going be stronger than ever when they eventually get back into the main competition.

Did I say “eventually”? I meant that there is a max of two more weeks for Second Chance. It’s getting down to the wire.

5 contestants are going to be leaving us this week. That’s a third of the field.

So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites!

The poll closes Tuesday, March 28th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

Results - Week 12

Good evening.

For some of you at any rate.

For others, this journey of Season 10 is at an end. Well, hopefully the bigger journey - that of continuing to write and explore their talents, to push themselves - and of course to do so as part of the Home Game, while cheering for their personal favorites still in the hunt!

4 people are leaving this week, but we already know who one of them is, because of the sacrifice in the Voting post itself.

Our sacrifice is the mighty sestinaqueen

Thank you so much for coming out this season and for making it special. This is a really good group of people assembled here for our 10th season and I hope that you will continue to be a part of that.

Work Room - Week 13

One of the things that I liked about this week's topic (beyond the obvious, that folks may remember that it was posted above the door when they first signed up) was that there are different translations of the same line.

So differences in translations is definitely one of the many ways to go that aren't as "obvious".

I'm giving you that one for free. ;)


I know that personally, when I sit down and write, there's definitely a part of me that "abandons hope" and doesn't come out until I'm done with whatever I'm working on, which is when the self-doubt shows up. You?

How do you deal with it?
