If the voting on LJ Idol ends as it stands now, I'll be out.

I'm not begging, but I am pleading. If you haven't had a chance to go vote for me, please do so. I've enjoyed the competition, felt that it's stretched my writing chops past where I thought they ended, and generally want to continue.

I'd like to be able to say I made it to the top 50. If I make it to the top 50 I'll stop asking for votes. That's a promise.

Voting ends at 7pm Monday.

Vote for me?

When LJ Idol began, I told myself that I wouldn't ask for votes, that my winning or losing should stand simply on my merit as a writer. I held high convictions that I could get somewhere with the competition without once having to turn and say "Please, go cast your vote for me!"

That lasted about a week. I started reading other people's entries (something you should do; they're awesome) and realized that I need all the votes I can get to get me as far along as possible. I want to stay in as long as I can, and the only way I'm going to do that is with a little help from my friends.

I've seen an improvement in my writing from when I started. Having a topic to focus my mind on, having to compete against so many other amazing talents, I've really had to stretch my skills. It's been fun.

I'd like to stay in. If you have a few minutes, please follow the link at the top and vote for me. If you have a good hour or so, follow some of the links to other people's entries; there are some really amazing pieces out there this week, just like every week.

The bottom two vote-getters in each of the three tribes are out this week. I'd like to stay in, and I need your help.

Thank you.

I really poured all my writing ability into this week's LJ Idol story, and from all the positive comments I've received I'd have to say it was worth it. I'm quite proud of the entry.

That said, if you liked it, I hope you can take a moment to go to the poll and vote to keep me in the competition!

The deadline is Noon on Tuesday the 23rd.

Thank you!

The poll for LJ Idol voting is up!

You guys have done an awesome job of keeping me in the running, and I really appreciate it. We're halfway through the season; somehow I'm still in. I am honestly shocked and delighted. I'd love to make it further, so if you want to show me the love, go give me a quick vote? I'm in the first tribe now.

1) If you would vote for me, I would appreciate it. However, I'm not too concerned either way, so if you've got other stuff to do, feel free to skip this. To see which entry you're voting on, come to my LJ and scroll down a little; I haven't been updating much lately due to other stuff.

2) Sick day today. Curling up on the couch with the dogs, and I don't plan on doing anything else, except maybe letting said dogs outside once in a while. I'll be fine, just have a headache and achy body. The two chronic pain things I've got going on are both acting up today. Wonderful.

3) Recently, my friend Brett asked what I'm going to do now that LARP USA is out of business. It's a good question, and I just don't know the answer. I'm trying to consolidate my 1,001 ideas into two or three goals, and finding it harder than I thought. I know I want to learn Arabic, master the language, and maybe be a translator, but that's a long-term thing instead of a crazy idea. I like crazy ideas, and need one to follow.

So, do you have a crazy idea you think I should follow? Become a rock star? A movie star? Maybe I should go back to being an art model, full time? Should I open a wacky-yet-needed web business like zombie survival kits? How about if I open a restaurant? I've seen people on Kitchen Nightmares; I don't know if I'd make it as a business, but I'd do better than them!

Hit me with your ideas. I need a muse!

Hey folks,

You know that LJ Idol thing I'm participating in?

Well, I'm not doing so great this week. I'm towards the bottom of my team as far as voting goes, and I could really use your vote. It's open to anyone this time around, so if you wouldn't mind going here, scrolling down to tribe four, and voting for me, I'd really appreciate it!

While you're at it, feel free to vote for other people too, but remember: The vote has to be in by noon today!

I didn't think I'd be this low in the polls, and wasn't going to ask for votes, but I just checked, and need the help!

Hey folks, guess what!

It's the end of the week!

That means that it's voting time again! I've moved up a group though, and you can find me in group 4, with such notables as [ profile] ewok_626, so you know I need all the votes that I can get!

This contest is definitely fun, and a good chance to stretch my writing chops. I look forward to continuing in the competition!

Okay, so you may not have even read it yet, since the post hasn't even been up that long, but this is my LJ Idol post for the week, and here is the poll where you can vote for me to keep me in the running! I'm in tribe two.

If you have time I'd suggest checking out others who have written stuff. There are some really powerful essays out there this week.

Whether you check out others or not, I'd appreciate a quick vote, because I want to stay in the running.
