Vote - Week 11

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Congratulations to our Top 10!

In case you missed the announcement, kathrynrose has restored the Birthday Curse by throwing herself, and the contents of her Chopped Challenge basket, onto the pyre.

Obviously this was a rough week for her, but I’ve got to say that this season was quite the transformation. It’s funny, because I don’t think that she changed all that much from any of the previous times that she has played, but I think this season she is going out pretty much universally beloved in a way that I’ve never seen before!

Maybe it’s due to the shortened season, and a smaller group of people, so there was less of a chance that she would want to murder any of them in their sleep! ;)

But whatever the reason, it brought out the best in her - and it was really nice to see! Quite frankly, I was starting to wonder if I was going to be finally seeing her in the finals! That would have been something! Well, now there is something to build on for Exhibit B! :)

Remember to send me your five top picks of items from the Community Chest: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/633787.html !

As for the rest of you, there is still the matter of a poll!

I gave the contestants a new set of topics this week, they picked one, and ran with it. Which is never really a good way to write, your hand bounces all over the place and who can make out what it says?? It’s much better if you sit down with it!

We will be losing four contestants this week, as the competition heads down the home stretch and we get closer to our finale!

I know it’s not going to be an easy choice, so make sure you read everything, comment on the entries and vote for your favorites. Then make sure to tell everyone to come over and check out what’s going on here, they are bound to find some of their new favorites too!

The poll closes Thursday, April 11th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

Good luck to everyone else!

Thanks, ma'am. :)

It's been a pleasure to read you some more!

Awwwww pffft. What kind of quitter... oh, wait :p

kathrynrose, madame, you posted some badass stuff this mini-season, and dammit, you are a rockin' fiction writer! So there. ♥

Sorry to see you go!

Thanks. :)

So sorry to see it end this way! But I'll bet you're feeling much more confident as a result of this round, and you stretched into fiction several times-- which showed a willingness to roll with things that has to feel pretty good too!
Apr. 9th, 2013 08:33 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I feel good about the things I wrote. I still don't think I'd use the word "confident" to describe my relationship to fiction, but it was nice that people seemed to enjoy it. :)

Sorry to see kathrynrose go! I was looking forward to reading more from you as the competition wound down to its end. Best wishes!

Funny thing, getting bounced--I've been really engaged with setting up a summer scholarly writing project, and I think I have Idol to thank for it; I've been writing regularly since January because of Exhibit A, so the pump has been primed.

Apr. 9th, 2013 02:41 am (UTC)
Thanks. I hear you on the pump-priming. My "Let Light Not See" post inspired me to pull out my old nano novel after letting it sit forever. I spent a lot of time on it this weekend (when I should have been working on my Idol post).

There is clearly a lot of talent here. There has been throughout the whole thing, but I'm not sure how I'm still here? And this week three poems! My goodness! Poetry isn't dead!!!
Apr. 11th, 2013 09:15 am (UTC)
Aww, Kathrynrose.

I've read and voted and not really left comments -- sorry, my Internet has been in and out since Monday, and it keeps crashing LJ, and I had to refresh the poll three times before I could vote successfully, and yeah, it's been three hours and I think I've gotten all of maybe one comment sent properly, and I give up. Sorry! Hopefully it'll be working next week....
Apr. 11th, 2013 12:48 pm (UTC)
Dude, it's cool. I think I speak for everyone when I say thanks for reading and commenting and supporting every single week. So, don't worry about it.
Apr. 11th, 2013 01:35 pm (UTC)
You speak for me!
