Green Room - Week 5 - Day 7

In the weeks approaching today, I had all these things in mind for what I was going to do with my day off.

I accomplished absolutely none of them.

The one thing that is on *your* agenda for today is making sure that you finish reading, commenting and voting for your favorites: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/883570.html because the poll closes tonight.

Am I crazy, or is there not much movement in the polls yet?

It's been slow, but there is more happening now. Is it a long weekend in the States?

It's Martin Luther King Day, but I don't know how that particular holiday works (I'm Canadian, no holiday for me!).

Yes, long weekend for most in the states.

I am still reading... told myself that since the list is shorter, maybe I can read ALL of them
so many writers, so little time

For the first time since I started playing I completed the reading, the commenting, and the voting long before the deadline. And it feels good.

I have a question, Gary. What are the rules about voting for one's self?

I also have a question so I thought I'd tack it on here. Hope that's okay.

What are the rules for editing entries?
a.) Before the poll closes, but the deadline to submit has passed
b.) After the poll closes

You *should* edit them before the poll goes up.

Some minor edits are OK. I don't police it. I figure that the voters are going to do that for me if they think that someone is abusing that.

Ultimately, it's your entry. If you realize you need to add something - add it. Just know that not everyone reads these things at the same time.

There are people who vote early, and if you don't have a finished product for them, they aren't going to come back and see if you've tweaked it.

hahah - well yes, of course you should edit before the polls go up. I just wasn't sure if what you've written is (or should be) locked in after voting has commenced.

Thanks for clarifying!

The rule is "if you feel that something deserves your support, you should vote for it. If you wrote something that you don't want to support, why should anyone else?"

Thank you.

Catching up like a wyld womyn on my reading. I spent the weekend on the coast listening to the Jungian poet, David Whyte, and letting everything slip sideways out of my mind. It was glorious, but now back to the real world LJ Idol!

Can't wait to hear all about it. 😊

Eleventh! Wait, are we not counting that. Just first?
Jan. 18th, 2016 10:59 pm (UTC)
Eleventh is a double first. So you get two cookies.
Jan. 18th, 2016 11:02 pm (UTC)
Yes! Now we're talking. I'll share one with you.

I got stuff done on my day off. Different stuff that what was on my list, but still done, so ok. Got my tix booked for my next trip to FL in June. That was the big one!

My eyes are bugging out, but I've read everything. I mentioned this over at the poll, but I think I need to start reading and commenting as people start posting. I keep waiting for the poll to go up and I just don't have the time to read *and* make comments. I tried to comment on entries of people I've missed the last couple of weeks first this time.

So, I did read your entries everyone! I just have friend out my brain and think I need a bit of a lie down even though I'm not quite done with comments.

I made qll of these plans for the long weekend and accomplished NONE of them.

On the other hand, i rewatched the first two seasons of Daria, so not a complete loss.
