Did a quick look at the numbers this morning.
In group 23 there are 25 people. 

Scores from last round are heavily skewed:
7 First Place
7 Second Place
3 Third Place
4 Fourth Place
4 Fifth Place

Also, she who beat me out for first place last round is in my group again. (Hiyas khodina!)
Gonna be a tough group.

Interestingly, it 80% female. (Making really wide sweeping assumptions based on names.) I wonder how that represents over the whole competition....

Anywho, I'm really just wasting time before a 9AM meeting. Then I'm going to close my office door and pretend to be working. LOL


Aaaaand... now I can panic, because I'M in group 23 too!!!! ConfusedConfusedConfused

I, umm... guess this is a good way to practice bravery??? Hehehe  ConfusedConfusedConfused

Heat 3 (fantasy/a loan/an introvert) statistics:

nine 1s
three 2s
five 3s
four 4s
four 5s

Of course a 5th place in one heat could be as good/better than a 1st in another heat.  And any set of prompts could lead to a better or worse story for any particular writer.  So I think this was procrastination fun, but not necessarily indicative of how competitive the heat will be.  I'm sure they'll all be competitive!  Top 3 out of 25 seems tough.  I don't know how anyone could feel extremely confident they'll make it to round 3.  I'd love to, but I'm not deluding myself. :-)

Heart Thank you for that vote of confidence. At least if I don't go on I'll have a really clear idea why this time. LOL  LOL

Top 3?  I went into this thinking top 5, then realized it was probably going to be top 4.  Top 3 makes me want to curl up in a ball and suck my thumb.

Fun thing about individual sports (or contests), you can't really affect what anyone else does, so the only game you have to worry about it your own.
