Work Room - Week 15

Thank you to alycewilson for a great job as Guest Mentor last week.

I hope that people were able to get a lot of good advice from her.

Unfortunately, this week I didn't end up with the volunteer I thought was coming - and it's something that I imagine is going to involve a lot of brainstorming. http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/432323.html

But isn't that the fun of the process?!!?? Right??? RIGHT!

So I hope you will be able to step up to the plate, especially now that more of you have a better understanding of who these strange names on the computer screen actually are, after a week of Contestant Only voting. Hopefully it also gave you a vote of confidence to believe in your own work for a change.

While waiting for the results, I busied myself by finishing up my Guide to writing a screenplay, which I thought I'd make public and share in case anyone else is interested in giving that a try for Idol. :)

Thank you for this! I have a house guest right now, but I'm going to be all over it when she leaves. *favorites for later*

So I was just brainstorming a funny idea with java_fiend last night. I thought it would make a perfect Idol tale... But we agreed it would be hard to fit the topic. But alas, the topic gets posted and it's PERFECT. Now how often does that happen??? Never to me. I thought I'd have to stretch it...but nope.

Now the scary part will be writing something funny *gulp* let's see if I can pull off twisted humor (or maybe my humor is too much for you guys since the master of creepy fiction even told me my idea was twisted and morbid. But funny too, I hope :)

That's what she said!

Haha... did that solely for the benefit of comedychick. :)

I really hope that somebody writes about Quidditch and broomsticks this week. It will probably not be me, but I'd like to see it from someone. :)

I wrote a Drabble once that featured "polishing his broomstick"... does that count? ;)

Interestingly, there is a strong connection between this topic and my old hometown. I'm alternately excited and terrified, and hometown tales nearly always mean HIPPIE TIME.

Aside from immediately thinking of DBZ and HP, I've got nothing with this topic, and I need to come up with something since I've used my byes. Woe. I will have to sleep on it and hope an idea pops into my head in time.

Question time! When you're stuck for ideas with the topics, what do you like to do? Do you try not to think about it or do you seek out something to inspire you (music, books, photos, etc.)?

I ususally ask M what he reckons, and then he'll come up with some suggestions. Then I'll thank him, and completely reject them :D

OK, I just floated over to Wikipedia to see what it had to say about "nimbus".

There's more stuff there than I would've thought, and not all of it has to do with DBZ or HP or a certain kind of cloud :boggle:

I've been chewing on this most of the afternoon. I have some thoughts... but I probably won't write anything until at least tomorrow. I think my first thought was HP, then clouds. Who knows where this'll go?!
comedychick
Feb. 23rd, 2011 10:28 am (UTC)
That's pretty much where my brain went too. I don't want to write HP or clouds because I feel like that's where everyone else will go. I've got a couple of fairly clear ideas now, though, which don't relate to either of those things.

Yay research? :D

I enjoyed being a Guest Mentor. I'm happy to see that all of the people who asked me for direct help are still in the competition! If it weren't so time consuming, I would serve as a mentor every week.

I really appreciated your help last week! I did something different as a result, and I'm very pleased with that. And I'm still here, so apparently it worked well enough! Really, thank you.

I don't know if this is regular or acceptable, but I'm wondering if one or two of you would be willing to beta-read my piece for me. I'm writing erotica, which I've never done before, and would feel better passing it by some folks first.

Any takers?
