The extra part this time is that I'd like to have some of you f-listies sign up too!
Have you ever wanted to challenge yourself and try new genres, or to simply improve your writing overall? Why not do it in an environment where you'll receive guidance and support, most often in the form of example and variety and friendship? Plus, there is the fun of the Green Room, featuring snarky entries by the mod and random discusion on pretty much everything. It took me months to realize what a good time that was, so I'm telling you now! Show up! Even if you haven't joined Idol yet or ever, show up and chat!
Exhibit B is a mini-season (so, 3 1/2 to 4 months, instead of the usual 8+ months), and is limited to 75-100 people rather than however many sign up before the deadline (Season 8, for instance, started with about 330 people).
It costs a minimum of a $5 donation (to keep the mod in Internets), and you can be sponsored by a friend. FAQ here.
Join me, please! I'd love to see what you come up with!
