Thoughts on Writing and LJ Idol

Well, the very last poll was posted today for therealljidol season 3. I finished reading the remaining 3 entries, and I've placed my vote. I can't believe it's been 6 months since it all started. Both johnmill79 and imafarmgirl did awesome, and I followed their progress from the beginning. agirlnamedluna came later, and I hadn't read as many of her entries, but now that she's in the top 3, she's my pick. I don't know how long it'll be before the next season starts, or even if there will be a season 4. What I do know though is that I intend to join. When this came up six months ago, I considered it, but felt that I didn't have enough time to devote to something like this. I still don't know about the time factor, but writing has always been fun for me, and something that often relaxes me. It's often said that a writer needs to write something every day. I used to do this when I was a kid, and sadly enough, as I got older, although I didn't lose the love of writing itself, I seemed to have lost the ability to make time, even if it's just ten minutes a day. I hope that LJ Idol will help me to get that back. Either that or it'll send me screaming in the opposite direction. SMILE! I sometimes feel that what I have to say might be boring to others, and I think that stops me from posting here unless something interesting is going on or whatever. I've also had those moments though where something happens and I'll think to myself that it would make a great journal entry. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. I don't know how far I'll go in this contest, especially since, compared to many of you, my Friend's List isn't very big, but I plan to give it a try. So, hopefully there's another season.
