But one of the OTHER best parts of taking part in Idol is getting to interact with so many different writers, with so many different backgrounds and viewpoints.
The first “intersection” is the easiest. People tend to grab someone that they already know. The second is a little more difficult. Although, most people already have relationships formed with at least two of their fellow competitiors. At this point, I would think that people would have them formed with everyone, but let’s be honest, I know that’s not the case.
My personal code, when it comes to Idol especially, is letting people make their own decisions. So, I’m not going to dictate who you pick. Other than saying that it can’t be the same person you worked with last time. The other wrinkle is that it can’t be someone who wrote the same topic as you did last time. That at least changes things up a little, and I hope it will make for some interesting pairings.
You know who you’ve been reading, and think that would be a great Intersection partner, someone who you can play off and bring the best out of each other’s work. It’s just a matter of finding the right fit. You have an extra day. But I’d suggest that you don’t squander it! The pairings tend to go in waves, if you want someone, I’d go out and grab them as soon as you can! Which is difficult advice when dealing with a roomful of introverts. But it’s the best way to get what you want, putting yourself out there to get it.
What are you looking for in an Intersection partner?
