In case anyone wondered...

There are 2,522 writers in the competition.

There are 32 people in each group 1-42 and 31 people in each group 43-80.

Promptwise, there were:
6: Comedy, Horror
5: Action/Adventure, Drama, Fairy Tale, Fantasy, Ghost Story, Historical Fiction, Mystery, Romance, Romantic Comedy, SciFi, Suspense
4: Thriller
3: Crime Caper, Political Satire, Spy

That's all. No fun numbers until results come in. >.>

Here's a spreadsheet with the assignments broken down in easier-to-analyze ways. In case you are feeling bored and empty in the wake of the 48-hour panic ;):


Edited to add (from Nixie, the real data!master):

Scores Spreadsheet updated with this year's entrants.  Find it here.

For those who are new here - this spreadsheet does NOT have genre assignments - it has scores and results, round by round, for the last two years, and an analysis we did last year exploring whether there was any correlation between those who posted to the forums and engaged in critiques, and contest results.

Have a glass of wine and take it like a writer.

Yay Maine! I have been in NYC for two years now, but I was born and grew up in Maine!! So it always makes me smile when I see some Maniacs! :)

Thanks so much.  I had tried counting and settled for rough estimations.  Thanks.

Random question: does anyone know about how long the judging process takes for round 1?
