Work Room - Week 29

The new topic is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/807797.html

People don't usually consider the "Survivor's guilt" that happens when you outlast someone that you have been rooting for over the course of the competition. After all - when it's "not you" going, that means it's someone else - most likely someone that you have come to like and admire.

So, what do you do about it?

The same thing you do in any other circumstance - you make their passing matter. Harness that energy, that emotion you are feeling, and use it to write something even better. Show that you *deserve* that spot. Even if you are feeling sad about someone else not having it!

How can you do that?

Only you can answer that question.

But I can *ask* a different, but related, question to the those who remain: What do you want to see out of the contestants? What would you like to see more of? Less of? What is it that you are responding to that you just wish that more people would realize?
