Announcement

People have been asking when the "Junior Idol" was going to start.

For those who *don't* remember what that is about - it's for kids-teens who want to participate in an "Idol-event" without any eliminations.

The truth is I've been running an unofficial one for the last few weeks. Celena (who is 11) keeps asking me for topics for the stories she's been writing! :)

It's going to be a low-key thing. I'll open up a Home Game thread for adults to play along.

As to "when" it will happen -

I'm opening up sign-ups on Monday May 11th.

So if you know someone who might be interested, let them know!

So exciting! I know that KFP will be on board! He loves opportunities to be creative.

I was hoping!

I would just post the ones that Celena has been using, but they have all been hockey-related!

Is it open to guinea pigs, too?

Valid question.

Guinea pigs can definitely Home Game it.

I'd rather it be focused on the kids and anything that veers off that risks the whole "I'll pretend to write as a kid!" factor and while that might be fun for someone to do for their own satisfaction, that kind of defeats the overall purpose of "kids being creative".

I'd rather see adults, even adults experimenting with formats, Home Game.

I don't know anyone like that :/.

But I'm looking forward to what will happen :-)

Me too!

I figure the first season of Idol had 9 contestants and rose to having nearly 300. If the first Junior version is proportional... ;)

Seriously though, I think it could be fun. Hope that other people agree with that and stick around to encourage them!

I think qween394 might be interested in making another go-round, now that she's about another year of school down and expressing even more interest in writing longer pieces. We'll ask her. :)

I'm letting my friend know--her oldest (14) is definitely interested in writing, and some of her younger ones might be interested as well.

So, especially if the kid is limited on his/her internet outlets, can the young entrant have the entries posted on mom or dad's account and enter?

Absolutely. Just let me know that's the case.
