Idol, anyone?

Since I've already talked like a squillion people into participating and then not done so myself, why not finish the job?

This is a mini-season, and judging from the way the last one went, it's way less stressful than the normal seasons. No hell week, no Gatekeepers, none of the really tear-your-hair out stuff. So it's a great way to get your feet wet if you've been wanting to try Idol and were too scared of the pressure. And there are still a few spots left!

With that said, there's also a $5 suggested donation to play in the mini-season. I will happily sponsor one or two of you. If you're shy about asking for a sponsorship in the comments, just PM me or email me at n3m3sis42(at)gmail(dot)com.

The sign-up link is here:

It links to the FAQ if you need to know more. If you want to know about my experience with season 8, feel free to ask me. I also had a bunch of friends do the previous mini-season, so I'll be more than happy to explain my view of how it went (which means shit because I didn't play).

Anyway, doooooo eeeeeeet.

I'd like to have a go - would you be willing to do whatever it is you have to do?

Sure, all I have to do is send Gary the 5 bucks for you to play. The thing you have to do first is go to the sign-up link and follow the instructions. Lemme know after that and I will PayPal Gary on your behalf. ;-)

I'll look into it... Not sure I have the time

BTW, screened that comment. But anyway, you can always drop if you don't have the time! :D

So, what is the victim count up to? ;)

I think I've lost count. I'm still pressuring a couple more people. I'm assuming kathrynrose brought you in? I'm excited to see your writing. :D

"..it's way less stressful than the normal seasons. No hell week, no Gatekeepers, none of the really tear-your-hair out stuff."

Gary is ALWAYS lurking. You may have just doomed yourself, and everyone else in the competition.

Good thing I'm not playing this round, then! Hmm, I wonder if he'd pick me to be a Gatekeeper. I'd like that. :D

Ah, my mistake. The first couple sentences kind of sounded like you had decided to play after all.

In that case, be prepared for when the angry mob comes for you once Gary gets done putting them through hell week.

Yeah, I do feel pretty bad if I just caused hellfire to rain down on everyone who is playing. I still haven't fully recovered from the one in season 8.

I've been super on the fence about it. I kind of need to get back into a writing habit, but I also want to focus on this other non-idol project. I think I've been waiting for something in the universe to decide for me, haha.

That's pretty much how I feel about it, too. I've been writing every day, but I'm doing a rewrite of my book and it's going so slowly because my time and focus are very limited.

Does my offer of sponsorship decide for you? Ha.

Heh, I suppose that I could take that as my sign from the universe, if you're still up for it and Gary is still taking folks. :)

There were still openings as of earlier today when Jem was asking in the GR. Go ahead and sign up -- let me know when it's done and I will send Gary the goods. :)

It is on.
May. 10th, 2013 12:25 am (UTC)
(Thank you.)

Not a problem! Money is sent now. :D
