Green Room - Week 36 - Day 5

In life, there are always going to be things that people tell you that you can’t do. So, it’s no surprise that you will see the same said about writing. It makes even more sense that people start telling themselves the same thing - anywhere from just the “I can’t do this!” to the more elaborate “that’s pointless and cruel”.. completely ignoring that people do it all the time. You get deadlines that seem completely impossible.

You get them, and you either rise to the challenge, or decide that you need to fold.

Some people can do it, and some can’t. It doesn’t say anything other than certain personality types adapt better to pressure than others - and some people thrive under stress that would completely collapse other people.

Over the years, I’ve seen a few people’s tempers (and better judgments) snap under the weight of “Hell Week”. I’ve also seen far more end up finding something pretty darn special about themselves, and their fellow competitors through the process.

I hope to see that happen again this season with it. All *insert evil laughs here*, I wouldn’t be giving anyone something that I didn’t have the full faith that they can handle, and be pleasantly surprised at the results once they get the chance step back from it.

For whatever it’s worth, I’m proud of what you have done - and the progress on the hill you are currently climbing! You deserve to be remembered among the “best of the best”, and I hope this will be a part of that Idol legacy!

The new topics are up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/593207.html
the Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/591795.html
and the Home Game thread: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/592005.html
The last two are the same, because it’s still Week 36!

I hope everyone takes the time to read, and comment, the Part A section of the entries: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/591554.html
Because there is a lot of good stuff there!
