Top Chef! Also, seeking new writers!

First, the Top Chef Finale's recap is up at Hey, Don't Judge Me. Let's keep discussion there to spare people of spoilers, okay?

Second, as we have some shows winding down, I'm looking to add new ones to the stable of shows at HDJM, and am looking for new writers.

Here's what to do, if you're interested:

  1. Email me at heydontjudgeme[at]gmail.com, subject header: NEW WRITER:[show you want to recap]

  2. send me a sample of a recap for the show (if it's a show that hasn't aired yet, pick another show with a similar vein, ie: mystery for mystery, sci fi for sci fi, etc.) It only needs to be a few paragraphs long, like a scene or two, just enough to give me an idea of your writing style

  3. WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR: conversational writing. Imagine telling a long-lost friend about the most amazing thing they're not watching.

  4. Also: understand that I EXPECT a 24-hour or less turn around time. Consistently being late means getting the boot. Sorry, but we're moving into pro-territory here, and I expect my writers to piss excellence. :D

And if it's a returning show, I'd love for the new writer to be willing to go back and sum up previous seasons, if possible.

UK shows Yes/No? I read the about bit on HDJM and it didn't say US only, so *hopeful eyes.*

I was thinking of doing Whitechapel recaps. The final episode of series 3 is on this week, but if there's a fourth, I could play catch up till that airs.

UK shows are fine! Hit me up, gurl, you know I like your writing already!

I just sent the sample over to you. Let me know if the attachment doesn't work/you want more/you'd prefer I never contact you again. :)

Oh, hush your mouth. I almost ALMOST wanted to reinstate Celebs_on-Crack on HDJM where all of our old characters review things.

IT COULD HAVE BEEN FANTASTIC... Oh, crack, I miss you.

Oh, man! I now have mental images of Will Ferrell, Vanessa Paradis and Jack Davenport watching Sherlock together. It could have been majestic and magnificent.

I still miss that rpg. GOOD TIMES.

ME, TOO. I still think that Prince's Cyborg Body and the Colin Farrel Dance Off remains one of the funniest things I've ever been a part of.

Man, the Celebrity Jeopardy! God, we had fun.

A Whitechapel fan! I am very happy right now. :)

I sent in my sample, wish me luck!

SQUEE! I have so much happy now!


Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
