Most of you know that I love statistics. I've compiled the stats for the most recent Writing Challenge quarter for those of you who share my love of numbers, and I've listed them below.
If you're new this quarter, this is how I compute these: I give 10 points for a 1st place in a weekly challenge, 9 points for a 2nd place, 8 for a 3rd place...and so on, down to 1 point for a 10th place EC. I keep track on a simple spreadsheet, then add up the totals at the end of the quarter.
If your name is on this list--congratulations!
