Yeah, lately I haven't spent much time in the green room, mostly because it's annoying just to keep refreshing the page over and over again. 8 votes is pretty good for being so close to the beginning. I haven't done any voting yet, so haven't even looked at the voting page. I've been writing comments to people when I really should be laying down resting my elbow.

I spent time in the green room when the contest first started, but I tended not to continue threads and do the conversation by comments thing. As I start feeling better, I'll probably do more in the green room. I'd really like to do well in this thing, even though it really doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. What I like about it is having a topic that you must write about and having deadlines. I never like complaining about the topic because I figure that I can twist my writing into something pertaining to the topic. The whiners really annoy me :). People who don't fight to the top also are a bit annoying as well, even if they are good writers. I just think it's much more important to know that someone has improved and fought their way up the ladder rather than either being a really strong writer or throwing their friends list weight around.

I agree on, well, all of it. The complaining about topics in a writing contest is especially annoying, since we have byes to use.

I started LJ Idol because I needed a bit more structure to my writing, and yes, the deadlines help. Nothing makes me more productive than the last minute.

You should go rest and stop writing to me and I should make some dinner for my son before he starts screaching.

Feel better, and get some rest, and good luck with the vote!
