Real LJ Idol, Season 8  
F-listies, you (and your amazing Week 1 entries) have persuaded me. It's time to stretch my writing boundaries again

I'm in!

YAY! I am so happy that you are participating. ♥

You and Jen pushed me over the edge. I was so impressed with your entries, and they couldn't have been farther apart in style.

*gulp* Now I have to write the first week's entry. :0
Entendre? Make mine a double.: SN Dean Approveddeirdre_c on October 20th, 2011 06:00 pm (UTC)
Good luck, honey! \o/

Thank you! Let's hope I make it through a few rounds, and that the prompts don't make me crazy. Oh, what am I saying-- of course they will!

Thank you so much for the lovely birthday v-gift! It was such a nice surprise. :) ♥

Welcome! I look forward to reading your entries!

Thank you!

I look forward to writing some. One of them had better be soon, since I'm starting late... ;)

\o/ It's a wild ride. :)

Yeah-- this first week's topic is probably kind of a poor match for me, but better to jump in with both feet! :0

I'm struggling with mine too. :(

For me, it's a "does not apply" prompt.

So do I fake something up (true fiction), or go for the personal truth instead?

Yerk. :(

Personal truth tends to go over pretty well. Honestly, part of the fun of Idol is trying to figure out novel ways of "twisting" the topic and approaching it from an unexpected viewpoint!

Welcome to the Idolverse, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do (5th time veteran, whee)!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on October 20th, 2011 08:09 pm (UTC)
5 times-- wow! That's a testimonial in itself. :)

Thanks for the welcome and the tips!

Either approach works. :0 I'm going for something sort of fiction/true fiction that's more a riff on the prompt - I think - LOL!

I think this is part of the fun. There is no right approach. :)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on October 20th, 2011 08:11 pm (UTC)
There is no right approach. :)

I'm pretty sure there are some potential wrong approaches, of course.

Writing the entire entry in cat macros, for instance. Which I would never do! Promise!

Or... wait :0

;)

LOL!

Humor is not my strong suit. I really envy those that can do it well. :)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on October 20th, 2011 08:38 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to try it for something like LJ Idol.

Fanfic, yes, but it's still tricky. Am I being funny, or am I barking like a rabid dog?

I have to admit, though, writing crack is fun. Especially if it's borderline-plausible. ;)

That icon is really pretty! I love all the colors.

Omg, locknkey was telling me about this at Wincon. It sounds intense! Go you!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on October 21st, 2011 07:07 pm (UTC)
Intense and possibly ultra-stymying. *gulp*

Thanks for the encouragement! :D

Cool! I looked into doing this. Then mommy brain kicked in. Good luck!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on October 22nd, 2011 07:53 am (UTC)
Thanks!

At least your mommy-brain kicked in before you overcommitted yourself. So much better than afterward. :0
