I love seeing people working things out and exposing their general philosophies and thought processes, when discussing something that seems fairly basic, but has layers to it.
That said, there seemed to be some confusion about what Idol does and doesn't support. I need to remind people that opinions and observations about "this is my experience" are fine. But when it comes to speaking for Idol there's only one person who can do that. He's the one posting this. As long as people remember that, it's all good.
I know that some people just want to concentrate on writing the entry before the deadline. Which is today (Thursday the 8th!!) http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/504693.html So, if you don't have anything done yet, you best be getting a move on! ;)
I know others enjoy the conversations about "the craft" in the Work Room and the fun in the Green Room. When it comes to talking about writing though, I think it's entirely appropriate that it spill over. I hope it continues to do that.
But I want to make sure that the people who come in to just unwind and chat with people are also engaged.
