May Check-In Thread

Recommended Posts

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

@Jedi Knight Muse will be doing the updates for May, and will be using the "nice" reaction to let you know that your word count has been added to the Excel sheet.

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 April, please only count words that you are writing in May 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 May 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.

Bug reports concerning the spreadsheet can be posted here in this thread as well.

Also, I just had a look at the spreadsheet and I think that's a problem with my name. I have just announced my first total of the month so I should still be on 0 for the month of May. So, where did that 13k come from?

If 500 words is what you've written so far in May then yep, you're doing it right. XD
