A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:

I love LJ Idol.

It’s not just something I do to pass the time. It’s a passion for me. That’s what keeps me coming back week after week, season after season.

I hope that that love can translate through the series of tubes that make up the intrawebz and infect the rest of you as well.

Because what is happening here is something special, and I hope you are able to see that.

I also have fears though, fears that things won’t go well. Fears that this thing withering and dying.

Why am I mentioning this? Because the topic this week is “Fear is the Heart of Love” and I just mentioned “fear” and “love”, as well as tying it to LJ Idol, which owns a piece of my heart!

Now is the time that you get to take that piece of my heart and decide what is going to happen to it for a week.

It’s voting time, which means that everyone can come in and decide what is going to happen next. Use that power wisely.

Before we get to that though, we have the sad news of the people who have “byed-out”/missed the deadline without having a bye left. There are some newbies, but also some Idol favorites.

Goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] anastoff, [livejournal.com profile] barrelofrain, [livejournal.com profile] belgatherial, [livejournal.com profile] cheapxdate, [livejournal.com profile] cloworora, [livejournal.com profile] diaryofa_mom, [livejournal.com profile] fabrisse, [livejournal.com profile] feritatum, [livejournal.com profile] fourzoas, [livejournal.com profile] harmony83, [livejournal.com profile] l0retta, [livejournal.com profile] opal_owl and [livejournal.com profile] yuniebaby

Thank you for coming out this season, and I hope you are able to take part in Second Chances in the near future!

The two contestants with the fewest votes in Tribe 1 will be eliminated.

The poll closes Wednesday, Jan 18th at 9pm EST.

Good luck to everyone!

Yeah, real life got the better of me, alas. :( Oh well.

That sucks. Hope all is going well, or fixes itself very soon!

It's almost equal, those who wrote an entry and those taking a bye? Wow.

Yeah, I see that. I'd just eyeballed it, and it looked like it was even to my poor old eyes :p

Still, wow.

The bye-outs feel large. Unprecedented or average??

*hugs* I would never attempt to make you or anyone else feel badly about something like this. I hope I didn't come across with that intention. I was more asking about past "averages" and how this season compares.

I agree completely - we need more discussion in the GRs (I don't go to the Work Rooms so can't speak to that) about how much fun Idol is and how wonderful it is for writing chops and meeting other writers and challenging ourselves as writers!

And we keep writing. It was a tough topic for me to write this week. I had plenty of ideas, but actually getting it down in a way I thought was good was difficult.

As I'm a newbie and have nothing to compare it to, I can't be sure, but it seems like a lot of people are bye-ing out. Is this normal?

Date: 2017-01-17 01:02 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] my-name-is-jenn.livejournal.com
This is very true. :)

ETA: Though part of me wishes I could move on through the rounds on my own accord, rather than doing it possibly because someone had to drop out due to Real Life getting in the way.

While winning would be nice, the best thing about Idol for me is that I write well under deadline. I want it to go on foreeeeever!

From: [identity profile] my-name-is-jenn.livejournal.com
Oh, absolutely. I'm in this mostly for the socializing and getting better not only at writing but at writing under a deadline.

Though I'm of course not saying that winning wouldn't be nice. ;)

I don't think people bye-ing out says anything about the quality of this competition. LJIdol is awesome.

The season started at a rough time of year though, at the end of a rough year in itself, and I think you are right that folks just didn't ration their byes very well.
