Vote - Week 29

A few words from clauderainsrm:

People like to “tell me the truth” about things.

One of those truths was something that I ended up hearing more times than I can fully remember - but the most recent one was a little over a week ago.

“We all know Allison is going to win this again” and “Everyone else is just playing for Second Place”

When I lifted the ban on previous winners participating, I knew that anything could happen. Most of them ended up byeing out. But one stayed.

Until now.

Because not every season is the same, and Real Life can happen.

So wipe those slate boards clean Ladies and Gentlemen. Because it’s anyone’s game.

Thank you so much to whipchick for coming back out this season. I hope you managed to haveb some fun, and I know you certainly wrote some great stuff.

Hope to see you in the Home Game! (and at the Thai Temple when you are in town! ;) )

As for the rest of you, now that you have pulled your jaws up off the floor - our topic was “Gauntlet” and I wasn’t joking.

There is a regular poll. We will be losing the bottom three from there.

But there is ALSO a CONTESTANT ONLY vote. If you are a current contestant. (Hint: If your name is in the poll, you are) You will send me a list of your 15 FAVORITES from this week to clauderainsrm@gmail.com

We will be losing at least 5 but no more than 10 from there.

That’s right. It’s time to get brutal. :D

The deadline to get your contestant only votes to me is Tuesday, Dec 2nd at 8pm EST

The public poll will close at 9pm EST the same night.

Good luck to everyone.

(You’re going to need it. )

So for those of us who can grant immunity via the Home Game/Killing Floor -- we have to send you our list of 4 names by what, 7pm on December 2nd?

Whipchick, no! Certainly one of the most dangerous authors in the competition on the basis of talent. I will not forget your capacity to bring magic to non-fiction. Of a tiny handful of pieces that I have mentioned in topical reference within a conversation with someone unconnected to LJIdol, your works are worthy of sharing. I hope that made sense.

So sorry to see you go!

She's a writer's writer, or at least this writer's writer. ;0) <3 to Whipchick

I hope you continue to play in the home game. :)

So sorry to see whipchick go! Such an amazing writer and inspiration, and I just like having her around for all the terrific aspects of who she is.

Ooh, that's a whole lot of folks maybe going home this week!

Do you take the public poll results into consideration first, then the contestant only votes or vice versa?

Good luck everyone, and *Hugs* to Whipchick!

I'll announce that with the results. :)

What a week to write this entry, I should have known something was up when Gary cast the gauntlet.

So sorry to leave like this - I meant to at least sacrifice, but the Florida weather flooded me out of time.

Thanks so much for the kind words - I've enjoyed writing this season, but my editing business is picking up. So far this month I've done developmental edits for a YA set in Alaska and an African-American history/mythological family saga, and am about to ghostwrite a book on real-estate newsletters before plunging into line-editing a Turkish writer's science fiction epic and a Cold War memoir in January. On one hand, it's great to be making money in my field; on the other hand, it sure is cutting into my writing time, and I have to re-evaluate what I want to be doing!

I've felt for a few weeks now I wasn't giving the kind of feedback and support to my fellow contestants that really justified asking for theirs in return, so it's a bit of a relief :) And hey, maybe I'll find some way...some week...possibly soon...to be involved in another way.

Heh, heh, heh.

You were the first one to help out this noob...Thank you for that. I'll miss reading your work and learning from you immensely. I'm very happy that it's because you have too much profitable work to continue to play!

Peace and huggz

Really really sad to see whipchick opting out but I know she has great things ahead of her in this crazy craft of a lifestyle! Her commitment to the art and business of writing was an inspiration for me. And I credit her with encouraging my first sale. Be well, whipchick!

G, do you want the list alphabetically or by particular favourite or by....some other order that would make perfect sense but I'm overlooking?
clauderainsrm
Nov. 26th, 2014 05:55 pm (UTC)
Alphabetical (and without numbering) would be ideal.

I'm not convinced whipchick won't still win it. She's that good!
