Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics

We currently have 80 81 assignments in, with another 29 28 either with extensions we know about or with pinch hitters. So thank you for that, and thank you as always to our marvellous pinch hitters.

Of course, the people who have yet to submit their stories, and our pinch hitters, need to write ::checks sums:: 6,138 words each.

Why? I hear you ask. Well, let me explain. At some point, moonlettuce and I were marvelling at prolific fic writing abilities of our participants. And the conversation went something like this:

moonlettuce: Wow. Do you think we'll hit a million words?
alyse: ... To the spreadsheet!

We're currently sitting at 822,000 832,500 words (using our best word counting in notetab and taking a little off for notes guestimate). And so far the average length of stories is around the 7,000 7600 word mark. So we have 29 28 stories outstanding, and 178,000 167,500 words to go to hit the one million mark.

Which works out at 6,138 5,982 [ETA: See? Someone's totally lowered the average for you already! *\o/*] words on average each for the remaining stories, less than the average length so far. Totally doable, people!

But, you know. No pressure ::g::

*\o/*

(In all seriousness, the important thing is to have fun, fun, fun! And while it would be cool to hit 1,000,000 words for the exchange, there's always next year ::g::)
