So, I just announced this in the [ profile] therealljidol's work room, but I've been competing this whole season under the name [ profile] prog_schlock.

This has been a terrific mini-season and there are 14 really talented writers (and also me) still left in the game.  We're just starting a new week and I'll post here when the next set of entries are up so you can read them if you wish.  This last week was stellar.

LOLOLOL, when we were having that conversation about the sea captains *you* did flash through my mind because I knew prog was an alt. Plus all that music!

Nice job, and I seriously mean that :)

ETA: And thank you for being on *my* side re the whole social GR thing. It was one of the reasons why I dropped this season. Personally I think this group as a group takes writing WAY too seriously and that seriousness crosses into the GR, Same thing happened last season. I was kind of hoping we'd be GR ambassadors or something, tbh.

Yeah, I'm totally more into the social element in a more equal way than I was back in seasons 6 and 7. Taking a couple of years off has mellowed me. I appreciate the conversation aspect. This is part of why I've been trying to leave more meaningful comments all seasons. Adding songs to each entry forces me to think more deeply about what I've just read. I have no problem with people just leaving "good job," but I've wanted to dive a little deeper this year. I know I always appreciate more thought out comments, so I figured I'd do my best to do that.

Holy cats, human interaction can be time consuming though! :D

Well, thanks for all the tune shares!

If your cat was commenting, she would wonder why I'd only shared tunes and not tuna. :D

Well, I will say there was something about [ profile] prog_schlock that was wa-a-y too smooth, but you can color me duly (and pleasantly) surprised!

Smooth like Santana.

I loved your serial. Do you think you'll continue it or is it over? I missed my dose of feather this week.

The serialstory is definitely not over, but on the other hand, I have to figure out where to rob the time to keep the thing going. Historically, you see, I've found that unless a prospective task has a deadline of some kind, it just can't compete for my attention and time with all the tasks that do have deadlines.

That said, I just recently tried the "make an appointment with yourself" approach with regard to a "non-essential" firearms class I signed up for last weekend, and it would appear to have worked, but if it wasn't for the fact that I had a certain amount of "skin" (in the form of cash) invested in the enterprise, I would have been perfectly right—and frankly, obligated—to cancel going to the class in order to do something that came up at the last minute. (The fact the world did not end as a result of my not dropping the class to do that last-minute thing is, of course, illuminating and reassuring, but one such "dose" of reality is, by itself, not sufficient to sway a lifetime of habit.)

Even now, as I try to marshall my thoughts, I am being called away to address something more... important.

Sigh. It never ends. :)

With a new face, a new attitude, and three new cats.

I've had a really good time this season. I've been focusing a little more on letting it be a way of making connections with people instead of being about surviving into the next round and its made me a happier, healthier person. :D

I can't believe you didn't tell me. Though this explains why you've been following the game a whole lot closer than I have.

Its been an excellent season so far.

I would have kept it a secret forever but I had to share an email for a team thing and was just too lazy to start a new gmail account

Yeah, I read the work room comments after you posted this. If I'd actually been following the game, I'd definitely have figured it out, especially from that last entry. If I hadn't from that one, well... that'd just be sad.
