Idol Minor - The Playground - Day 1

Welcome to the Playground!

It's like the Green Room, but for younger folks! :)

Adults can, of course, hang out here. But just remember to share!

The Sign Up Sheet is up http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/852051.html and I'm really hoping that our "first season" is going to do well. There were 9 people who signed up for the first season of the "regular Idol". Maybe the kids can show the grown-ups how it's done!


Yesterday was Mother's Day. Which seems like as good of time as any to start something like this. What was the best thing about yours? (human/fur/feathered/imaginary/otherwise)

Is there going to be an adult mini-season sometime soon as well? *kicks self for even asking this*

There will be. I still need to get the graphics together.

Hahahaha, I know, the dust has barely settled and I'm like, "AGAIN, AGAIN!" Of course, I barely touched Idol the last several months, so it's been more resting for me than for some others.

Part of me really wants to start it up again, but I still don't know any information about a post-July work situation nor do I have any graphics for it yet.

I just saw the news announcing that our inferior television cousin is ending after next season!

Hello from Denver. CO! The best thing about my mothers Day was getting to tour the (Unsinkable) Molly Brown House. We lucked into getting tickets for the last tour of the day (only one set was sold after ours). And today I get to have lunch with tatdatcm so that will be cool!

Tomorrow we head off to Salt Lake City with a brief stop at Arches National Park.

I lived in Denver for decades, and I never did get to tour the Molly Brown House. Next visit to Colorado, I plan to. I also plan to take my daughter to Casa Bonita, because it's a childhood milestone worth reaching.

Sounds like you're having a wonderful trip.

When you say under 14, does that mean 14 is too old? Or are you saying 14 and younger? Sorry if I'm missing what should be clear. My daughter is 14, and I'll let her know about this if she isn't too old to participate.

14 and younger.

The Queen of the Sprites and a keyboard! I would love a glimpse! Hope he means 14 and under!

Were you writing at 14, B?
May. 11th, 2015 03:29 pm (UTC)
You aren't asking me, but I was definitely writing at 14.

We've had successful Idol contestants who have been 15. So my only reservation about 14 year olds is hoping not in insult them by putting them with the "kids"!

I won my first writing contest around that age...gimmicky stuff, to say the least. My personal passion then being horses. What were you writing?

I think 14 is the perfect cut-off for this project - it's part of the "7 year" phase and is more of a cusp year than 12 or 13. It's good.

My 11 year old stuff was mostly barely disguised fanfic. :)

By the time I was 14 it was mostly science fiction.
May. 11th, 2015 04:26 pm (UTC)
Yes! But mostly poetry, I think.

She's thinking about it. :)

Can I enter my students in this - I have 6 students in special ed and having weekly writing prompts would be fun (while also meeting goals) and they'd enjoy the feedback that is not just mine. I'm curious to see what they would come up with.

You could.

Just make sure you have everything covered on your own end.
May. 12th, 2015 05:07 am (UTC)
Hey all! I don't know any one the right/ write age, LOL for this event, but sounds fun. Please no adult Idol till after June ends. Pretty please. I'll be traveling a lot that month. Fun times but no time for much quality writing. How is everyone? AW

Definitely no "adult Idol" during the month of June.

I'm still figuring out my work situation, the earliest I'm looking at is August for a mini season.

I'm going to ask my daughter about this, since she loves writing "short stories" and is 9. I will probably post for her under my account though.
May. 12th, 2015 01:34 pm (UTC)
That would be awesome. We would love to have her!

Nah. As long as you are actually translating and not embellishing, it's fine.

There's no prize for this. No one is being eliminated. I just want to strongly encourage people *not* to *pretend* to be kids, because that's really against the entire spirit of the thing and makes them look like ass-hats! :)
