I'm doing LJ Idol again :)

Who's with me? I know edith_jones is doing it, What about teenonfire4lord? blackfroggy?

Is there anyone new that wants to join? It's really fun! I'd like to see some of the other really good writers on my friends list doing LJ Idol, like lizblizz and ellie_kay!

I'm torn. On the one hand, I enjoyed aspects of it, stretching my creativity, writing, etc.

On the other hand, it's a popularity contest that often comes down to the size of a friends list rather than the quality of the writing. On top of that, I've disliked the past two seasons where there was a prompt that called me to write about my faith, and each time I lost serious support after that.

So in the end, I don't know. I'll probably get tempted again and do it. I wouldn't lay odds on Becky doing it, as she's transferring at work and getting that sorted out.

I don't think it's necessarily popularity based on friends-list, but more popularity based on relevance. I think the reason people didn't vote for your faith-based entries is because it wasn't as able to relate to for most contestants.

Also, its extremely hard to write about things so close to your heart, because it's easy to lose the elements necessary to make a good essay/story, particularly humor.

I really hope you do it. I really enjoy reading your posts! And it'd be nice to know more people in the competition.
