Green Room - Week 21 - Day 1

Which is also Week 20 Day 11. Because nothing good is ever simple!

Week 20 is on a pressure plate. All you have to do in order to stall the elimination from going off is to have 100 comments in this Green Room by 5pm EDT today! (Friday 9/12)

From what I saw yesterday, that should be absolutely no problem - and the great thing? You do this today and it doesn't go off until MONDAY NIGHT!

The poll is right here: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/778354.html

The new topic is http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/779089.html with the accompanying Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/779320.html

It's always interesting to see what people do and do not comment on. Especially when I hear "Give us something to respond to!!" I do - and some days there are crickets. Other days I post a GR with virtually no content, and the place goes crazy! ;) That's just how it goes sometimes!

Hopefully this is something you will go crazy for - being able to take the weekend to sit down and read the entries!

What have been some of your favorites so far?

First? W00t!

Been lots of favorites so far - I'm always impressed by a good Intersection. But now off to bed, because I have to get to work an hour early tomorrow for my bi-weekly front desk coverage. Blargh.

I read about 8 more entries today, and I'm nowhere near done... but I'll get in at least 10 more tonight, and should not be staying up until 1am or going down to the wire tomorrow. So, that's something. :D

I posted the following in the WORK ROOM...
... but as I'm asking for help/feedback, I want to maks sure folks see it.

When I saw the new prompt, my initial thought ran to showing part of the creative process for developing my saga. You see, whenever I hear certain tunes I see "visions" in my head, with the action taking place in perfect sync with the music. Essentially, my subconscious mind creates its own private "Music Videos"... but this started happening to me *LONG* before MTV and VH1 were created. Then again, my parents took me to see FANTASIA for the first time in 1969, when I was all of 5 years old. I was enthralled by that movie... and that's probably what fueled my subconscious in this case.

So... What I'd like to do is give a detailed description of one specific "vision"; I think I could put together the rough equivalent of a screenplay, which would describe the action in one specific "vision" of mine while simultaneously listing the lyrics of the song that inspire these "visions". The problem is that while the action in my head is rather exciting, I think reading the action in the form of a screenplay would be as dry as dust.

So... any comments? Suggestions? Responses?

help?

Re: I posted the following in the WORK ROOM...
I think it could be interesting depending on how far you push it. I also think it could be telling as to the state of your unconscious depending on how far you push it...

I don't really have any help though...

I've at least started reading! But today was one of those days where I got up this morning with my nice little (or, rather, not-so-little) to-do list and lots of ambitions. And now it is hours later and pretty much nothing has been checked off. And I can't even tell you what I did instead.

So much oy.

Does anyone have a trick to stop procrastinating? Because I need it.

The only thing that stops me procrastinating is an external deadline.

The poll, for example. I might never finish an entry without the poll deadline.

Or, a commitment to my writing buddy. If I've promised 1000 words by 6:00, and I know she's going to write HER thousand words, and I'll be slacking on my support of HER if I don't write MINE and have them to send to her.

This week's topic was a GIFT for me. And could not have come at a better time given I'm about to jump on a plane and won't be home until a couple of hours before the deadline.

New entry, done and dusted! Now to finish reading the ones from ~last topic!!

GOOD MORNING GR!!!

I'm working a half hour later this morning because my mentee (?) is doing her first solo bake. I've been instructed to stay in the background. I'm praying that she 1) retyped her notes from last week, and 2) remembers what we did last week. I don't know why they gave her such a lapse between training and doing. Don't these people ALREADY KNOW how much of a worrywart I am?!?!?

(yes, yes they do. And they still go ahead anyway!)

Meanwhile I sent my husband and Max The Husky out to find nondairy creamer, thinking Not Current Employer was already open. Evidently I was wrong. And all we have is skim milk for the coffee :p\


ETA: He returned with half and half AND a medium pumpkin spice coffee for me! And Max got his Slim Jim because his favorite cashier was on over at 7-11.

ETA: Am I the only one awake?!?!?!? I've got to get ready for work, so I'll catch everyone while I'm on my break and/or lunch!
