Worldsmyths Million - check-in thread - update your wordcount here!

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow writers,

 

I proudly present: our wordcount spreadsheet! I'll keep it updated with the data you provide, and it will spit out some individual stats for each of you and some overall stats and a progress graph.

If you have trouble viewing it or think you spotted a mistake, let my know by posting in this thread.

 

To update your wordcount, please check in here and share your wordcount using the form below. You can choose whether you want to provide your new total wordcount or the number of words added since your last check-in.

This is also the place to go if you'd like to increase your pledge, you'll find a form below to do so.

 

To make it easier for me to update the spreadsheet with the latest wordcounts, please keep this thread tidy and keep chatting to the other threads :)  (adding a sentence or two when you submit your wordcount update is fine, of course)

 

Thanks for reading, and have fun!

Hi Manu!  Just a couple of things!  You added my word count for the overall progress, but not to my progress.  Also, what time zone is the contest working on?  I thought it was running on -5GMT, but you have the date listed as the 2018-03-02, but it's still the 2018-03-01 in that time zone.

For some reason I thought you were ThoughtlessEpiphany - sorry, fixed it. The spreadsheet runs in my time zone, I'll check if I can change it somehow. Anyway, I'll use the date of the forum update posts when I update wordcounts, so that time zone thing should only affect the current date and some of the stats for a couple of hours each day, but not the progress graph. Thanks for pointing these things out!

 

I have to leave in a couple of minutes, I'll update everyone else's wordcounts when I come back!

 

Edit: Came back and did the update!

Also, the spreadsheet is set to GMT-5 now.
