What would you get if you took a writing competition added the twists and turns of reality television and put it on a rollercoaster with iffy brakes? You'd get LJ Idol: "A microcosm of everything Livejournal".
You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll buy the t-shirt, make some friends and hopefully learn something about yourself from the experience. Above all though you will write, read some incredible writing, and meet some pretty cool people from the process - and after all isn't that what LJ is about?
