August Rush Poll!

I'm a little later than planned with the poll, but here it is at last!

Go under the cut and vote for up to FIVE fandoms that you would consider playing with for August Rush this year! I will leave the poll open until midnight Saturday, PST, or thereabouts, so get your votes in ASAP!

Those of you who have offered to help find graphics or who supplied links to sites with screenshots, thank you! I'll be in touch where necessary once the final fandoms are chosen!

Please let me know if there are any problems with the poll! Oh, and if you have comments/questions about specifics within a fandom on the list, please share them here.

A small favor (and also a small promo)

Hi, everyone!

First of all, I'm super sorry for being so MIA around here lately. It's been a rough few months, but I miss all of you and I'm hoping to be more active again!

Second of all, I have a small favor to ask of you all. I've been participating in a writing contest here on LJ, called LJ Idol (therealljidol). It started back in November(!!) with around 180 people. Every week, you write an entry and then people vote and them someone (or someones) is eliminated. Kind of like Survivor/American Idol/ etc. This week, we are down to the top 11.

I really, really, really would love to make the Top 10, so if any of you have a second and could vote for me, I would be forever grateful. (The voting is super tight at the moment!) It closes tonight (Friday) at 9p Eastern.

If you have more time and want to read the entries (they are linked in the poll), there is some really good stuff this week! It's also just a super great and really supportive community for writers. I joined up last minute and I never even thought about promoting it (oops), but once this round is over, there will be a mini-round for kids and then there will be another one for everyone in the fall, if that is something any of you are interested in. I like it because it makes me write every day.

But I will stop rambling now. Thank you all in advance! <333

Good night moon

Weekend Challenge: All that JAZZ!!!

Alright cats and kittens, I am in charge of the Weekend Challenge this last gorgeous weekend in July and mine shall be:  jazz song titles--WOO HOO!!

Choose a number between 1 and 30 and I will give you a title of a fabulous jazz song.  Why jazz songs you ask?  Because I wanted to do something unexpected and jazz music titles are as unexpected as it gets—in my opinion at least. :):):)

I hope these jazzy songs inspire you, so please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you    Just post your work by Sunday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

I am not creative in any way with artwork, so if you want an icon, I will have to ask for help, but I can give you a drabble or add to my WIP.  My fandoms: Collapse )
Big buddy

Big Buddy August

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you every 6(ish) days to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every 6 days chime in to tell us that you've produced 20% of them.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!
