Green Room - Sign Up Week - Day 3

Apparently, the Cubs did something last night.

My guess is that they stole a picnic basket, or perhaps were filmed cuddling a kitten. Maybe they pretended to maul someone.

Those cubs are just adorable.

***

Speaking of adorable, I got to hold my new niece last night!

She was born on Tuesday, but shhhh!! There's a social media blackout until her Mom is ready to post pictures. So pretend I didn't say anything. But come on - it was pretty awesome.

***

What I *can* talk about though is that Sign-ups are still happening at http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/945807.html

So please spread the word.

We will have a topic on Sunday. Yes, I'm actually letting you know when there will be a topic post! Isn't that unique and maybe a little scary?

The door will be open for awhile, but make sure folks know not to delay! The sooner they get here, the more they can be involved with!

***

There was a comment that I saw yesterday about the difference between a "competition" and a "contest", and how that individual sees Idol.

I point this out, because it's the perfect thing for newbies to see, and I hope that they did.

Even the definition of "what is this thing called Idol" is something that changes every season. YOU get to take part in that. This is your Green Room. This is YOUR SEASON. It doesn't matter if you've been here 10 years or you showed up yesterday.

Which is something that always gets me excited at the start of every season. Because I have a plan. I have a template. But so much of what is about to happen is going to play out between all of you, and is going to shape what Season 10 is all about. I'm really looking forward to that!

theun4givables and I had an interesting conversation about the contest/competition aspect of Idol a few days ago. I don't want to speak for her, so maybe she'll chime in, but the gist of it was that we deal with the fact that we're writing to/for an audience in different ways.

For me, sniffing out what each season's particular audience wants and likes is a huge part of my playing style. If I'm sharing my writing I can't not focus on what the people I'm sharing it with want to read. I know there are others in LJI who write what they want to write, how they want to write it -- period, exclamation point, the end. The cool thing is that there's no right or wrong way to play, so I think both approaches are valid, along with all manner of others that fall between the two. :)

(Edited to correct typos. Blame the pain pills!)

To flip this, I sniff out what Idol's particular audience wants at the time, too, I just -- there have been a couple of seasons where I tried to play to what the audience seemed to like most, and I hated it. I hated playing those seasons. I was bitter and frustrated because what I thought the audience liked/wanted, wasn't ultimately what I wanted to write.

I am one of those people who have to write what THEY want to write, period, exclamation point, the end, apparently. I try to fit within certain standards (I mean, I like stories that have a clear beginning/middle/end as the next guy but sometimes I just wanna wax poetic about a little slice of life/moment in time and that's okay, too?), because I'm also competitive as fuck and like doing well as much as the next guy, but -- the Idol audience isn't the one I have to have in mind, first, when writing a piece. Not if I'm going to write what speaks to me.

Now, editing and shaping a piece after I've gotten the bones of it on paper, that's different. But I forgot about the "me" part of writing, last time. I would second guess every idea I had and throw out ones that really appealed to me, because they weren't, quote-unquote, Idol friendly, and I was miserable as a result.

And every time n3m3sis43 and I would sit down and discuss ideas, she'd hit me with questions like, "Well, what's the point of this? What are they trying to accomplish in this? What's the conflict?" about her pieces and I would be like DO THEY EVEN MATTER IT'S SPEAKING TO YOU WRITE IT GODDAMNIT.

Clearly we have very different approaches to playing Idol and tbh it's what makes being friends with her so great, if we can get past annoying the crap out of each other. xD

Very fun about your niece Gary!

Happy Thursday all. Hoping for a quiet day here in the snake pit. Almost didn't make it in because dispatch said I cancelled my rides for the day. It must have been my evil twin as I never called them to adjust my schedule. It got straightened out but good thing I checked! Sigh. Have a good day all!

Congratulations on the birth of your niece!

So, this is my first time posting in a Green Room. (Or is it second? Did that sign up count?) I'm excited and nervous. I have no idea what to say, and probably rambling on. Sorry for that!

Anyway, hi! I'm Kim. This is an alt name (am I using the lingo correctly?) My regular LJ name is i_am_an_angel. I need to change that name at some point. I feel I've grown out of it.

Yup. Awkward rambling again.

Honestly, I'm a bit intimidated, but I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone, reading everyone's entries, and writing my own.

Hi, Kim!

It's okay to be a little intimidated at first -- especially if it's your first time playing or even just hanging around in the GR. I promise you we don't bite. <3 Much, anyway...

Getting to know everyone is the best part. :) I love how LJI always seems to bring people back to LJ who seem to have disappeared from it for a little while (myself included, but -- I'm always reading, I'm just a lurker at heart...)

Congratulations, Gary!

I missed the contest/competition thread in yesterday's GR, so thank you for pointing it out. For me, the most impressive aspect of Idol has always been the quantity and quality of comments writers receive. It's something I haven't found in any other online writing community, and I'm certain that's why so many of us keep coming back, despite the torture. :) I won't say the polls are unimportant to me because, duh, I always want my entries to do well, and sometimes obsess over my submission's stats as much as anyone else, but its the comments I love.

Good morning GR! I'm probably going to sign up at the very last second, LOL.

I think part of my issue whether or not to play has to do with the direction the last couple of seasons. I dropped last season because I no longer found Idol the "fun" place I've always known it to be. It seemed to me that people took everything a bit too seriously in terms of wanting to publish (lots of concrit, for example); ergo, Idol lost IMO a lot of its community spirit in the process.

I guess what I'm trying to say is it'll be interesting how this season plays out. Will people turn into hobbits and disappear trying to craft The Perfect Entry? Or will people craft The Perfect Entry AND socialize at the same time?


Congrats Uncle Gary!!!

This is interesting. I do this for fun and to get back into writing again. If it isn't fun I'm gone. I have enough stress in RL for something I do in my off time to cause anxiety. If I do well, great. If I don't, great. And you're right. Part of what drew me into Idol in the first place was the community it created.

Technical question -

Or statement, maybe.

Someone is posting in the GR with some kind of setting or filter or something, because I keep getting (not a lot, but several times in the past few days) a notification (I have the GRs all tracked) like a regular notification of a comment, but instead of a comment, it says "(you are not authorized to view this comment)"

The most recent one was posted fifteen minutes ago in this Green Room.

My Facebook feed exploded with Cubs news last night. I think it's because I'm friends with a bunch of improvisors, and Chicago is a hub for that, so even the ones who don't live there were super thrilled about the result. XD

New topic Sunday! Hooray! Hopefully that gives me enough time to get through a number of things I keep putting off. Like reading some of the graphic novels I have checked out of the library. Many of them are due back on Tuesday :O

Speaking of Tuesday... I finally finished filling out my ballot and plan to drop it off today. Will probably head out for that soon.

I don't know what it is about the Cubs; they are really popular outside Chicago for some reason, in a way I don't think I've seen for any other team. (Not gonna lie, as a White Sox fan, I resent it a little bit. But I'm still glad the Cubs won.)

Congratulations Uncle Gary!

I'm one of the odd folks who isn't so excited to hold small babies. I will, and I don't drop them or anything, but I usually just hang to the back of the room and let everyone else who is super excited about babies go first.

Also, I voted yesterday. This CO system of all mail polling is so civilized, everyone should do it.

I leave the baby holding to others! I'd rather puppies and kittens thank you!
