LJ Idol season 10 is up! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/945807.html

I... am signing up. Because I have to get out of this slump somehow, and writing tends to do it for me. I also found a picture I would like to paint, if I can get my shit together. A vague Facebook friend (also from The Homeland, but more a friend of friends?) has been doing a lot of photography lately, and doing a lot of the thing where she combines 2 or 3 pictures together. The latest is a vague outline of her face overlaid with fall leaves, and it's pretty cool. It will be ridiculously hard to paint, especially out of practice. But some years back when I was in a slump, I also found a random person's picture on FB and decided to paint it. It... weirdly turned out looking like me, and never got finished, but hey, it's something right?

So I'm making this post public, encouraging y'all to go check out Idol for some writing goodness, and signing off for tonight :)

edit: Also I forget why, but my posts already default to 'friends only' and so I have to back and edit the entry to make it public... So it may show as each entry being edited for the competition; I'll try to make sure this happens before it's posted so it doesn't look shifty, but if I forget, I trust the readers to point it out quickly ;)

I feel like I did it on purpose and could probably change it, but I'd rather accidentally have my entries go to friends only when they're supposed to be public, instead of public when they're supposed to be friends only!

I agree! I had a non-friend (but also a relative) creep on my entries back in 2010. It pissed the person off hugely. I had to delete that acct and start anew, I stay much more protected now.

I had a roommate sort of do that... it was my fault ultimately because I didn't realize at the time that a person even could set things to friends only or private, but she only knew I had an LJ because she walked into my room unannounced. I hid it, but too late... thing is she had to look me up just to find it - went through an entire process of cross-referencing other people's old posts on other sites about me and finding the one key phrase that would bring her to one of my posts. I mean, it took some effort... and of course I was an idiot who was ranting in my LJ about our situation (being roommates wasn't going well), and obviously her feelings were hurt. I felt my privacy was violated, but really, it was stupid and thoughtless of me, and also came about because I just didn't feel comfortable talking to her about any of it. So that was a bad situation, and that's when I discovered privacy settings! We're friends again now, which is really nice, but that was just... so awkward.

All the best for the writing as well as the painting. Would love to see the finished work soon :)

Thanks :) We'll.... see about all of it, but at least the effort will be something!
