April Check-In Thread

Recommended Posts

(Using @Manu's original write up from March with some edits!)
Welcome to the April check-in thread for the Worldsmyths Community Writing Challenge 2019!

@Penguinball will be doing the updates for the month of April. Instead of using reactions like Manu did, she's going to just give a text reply to the post letting everyone know that the sheet has been updated.

Checking in to update your word count
You can either tell us the number of words you wrote since your last check-in (words to add), or keep track of your total and post your updated total word count (new total) - simply choose the option that is more convenient for you. You don't have to do any calculating, our spreadsheet will do that for you.

Simply copy and paste this form - you only have to provide one of the numbers, you can ignore the other one. I am adding a third part to this form, which anyone who did NOT participate in March can ignore. This third part is for your previous total - so, if you ended up reaching 15k in March, you would provide the exact numbers for what your final total was. If you did not participate in March (meaning you either didn't sign up in time or you just didn't check in), your number will be set to 0 in the spreadsheet until you update with your word count for April. I hope this makes sense, but if you're still confused please make sure to reply to this post with any questions.)

Remember, if this is the first time you're participating in the challenge and you did not participate in March, please only count words that you are writing in April toward your word count for this - meaning, even if you wrote during March but weren't yet signed up for the challenge, you'll have to start from 0 with your actual word count for the challenge.

I wrote words!
Previous month's total: [x] words
Words to add: [x] words
New total: [x] words

For those of you who prefer to not reset your word count each month, @Manu added the option to tell us your overall total of all challenge months to the spreadsheet.

So how does this spreadsheet thing work?

Here is this year's word count spreadsheet! You'll need to click on the April tab to see the stats and such for each person.

In order to access your individual stats, click on the "+" left of your name, and the sheet should expand and show them.

Edit: once it has hit April 1st in your time zone, you are welcome to start checking in with your word counts!

new total: 3560 words

(Is it okay when I start over? It's easier to keep track of the numbers.)

I'm not sure that I understand what you mean by "start over"- do you mean, like, not even count anything written in March? 'Cause that's the idea if so, you're not counting any words written in previous months, you're only counting what's written in the current month for the purpose of the challenge. But with this challenge, we're still counting previous words written for each month in your overall final goal at the end of the six months, which is why we have a spot in the form for previous words you wrote in the previous month if you participated. It's totally fine to start over on whatever you're working on, 'cause we'll still count the words from March in your final count. I hope that makes sense! XD
