goodbye to Idol

So, I was voted out of LJ Idol last week.  I finished 24th overall (in week 25) which is pretty amazing, and further than I've gotten in the previous two seasons I played.  This feels like a good time to be done actually - I can reasonably hope to still do better than this next season, and I'm about to go into tech so time to write will be harder to find.

I did write more fiction this season which was interesting because it wasn't intentional.  It also seems like the stuff other folks most remember is the silly nonfiction stories.  I am planning to create for myself a list of everything I've written for this game, because I'm curious to see how my writing has changed over the past three years.  Also, it feeds my need for lists and spreadsheets - heh.

I do want to thank my boyfriend J who puts up with me angsting about the poll or finding partners.  He also helps me brainstorm ways to approach the topic every week and is my regular editor.  Without him I wouldn't have made it this far.

I've met great people through this game and playing it means my creative genes don't get totally rusty.  It's been a great ride. 

(Also, I feel bad because people have been writing incredibly eloquent goodbye posts and this feels a little - meh.  Then again, no one is voting on this, so neener.)
