As of this moment: 469 stories posted (including 4 that were identified by title/synopsis but have not yet been posted)

*Every* Group has at least one story posted!!

Only 1 (1%) have a single story.  (Group 18, where are you?!?! I mean, seriously – do we hafta skim the roster, search the forum for your names, and PM you all? 😉)

Only 3 (4%) have two stories, which means 4 (5%) have 'fewer than three' stories

  • We like to have three - a chance to see at least two other takes on the prompts
  • If you are in Groups 42, 44, or 66, come "tip the scales" and get your group to 3 stories posted!!

Three stories is kinda the 'ideal minimum' but the 'ideal' is 'at least 5' - a chance to really get a feel for the range of things happening in the group.  

10 (13%) have three stories. 

  • If you’re in Groups 10, 27, 29, 32, 35, 46, 61, 62, 63, 68, or 74 your groupmates could still use some company!

14 (18%) have four stories. 

  • If you’re in Groups 2, 4, 8, 17, 20, 23, 26, 35, 53, 57, 59, 70, 72, or 75 – just one more story will get your group to five stories.

BTW - that also means that 52 (65%) of our groups have five or more stories posted!!  

With 20% more contestants than last year, we have 15% more stories posted than were posted for challenge 1 last year.

Nixie, I have to say that you are, quite simply, the best!

I hope to post sometime next week when I eventually get broadband in my new house. My computer has retreated to a corner of isolation and has quite given up waiting.

My phone instead has been sneering condescendingly at my computer, driven by its ability to burn copious amounts of 4G.

I wait in anticipation of joining the conversation on the forum and connecting with the world beyond the wheat fields again....

Aw, thanks Nixie!!!

They came and went Nixie and still no wifi!

The fibre cables were discontinued 5 houses down, 😢sob! So now, each day I wait for the technician in shining armour to turn up, casually dragging fibre cables to my door...
