Someone did the math in another thread. I believe it was 31 writers in groups 1-26 and 30 writers in groups 27-125.

Am I the only one who has NO email that scores were in? Luckily I checked the site. I’ve been getting all their other emails and it’s not in my spam either. Weird.

Showing “in progress” on submittable means nothing! It says that about stories I’ve written years ago.
As long as you got a confirmation your story was received about 2-3 days after submission, then it was.

Either way, I'm seriously disappointed in myself and tempted to just give up. I'm out 40 bucks and have proof I just need to end it here.

Hey Noiryn, I just checked mine to verify for you and mine also says "in-progress" - hope that helps!

Thanks for the lol!

My first time in this competition (and definitely first time writing a Ghost Story) and I got 11 points! What a surprise and a treat. 

Thank you good people for your feedback, and I have read so many of your stories also. It is hard putting your stuff out there.

Three points for me as well. Did you advance to the third challenge last time? 3 is more than I expected so I’m pleased. But I don’t have any idea what combined score lets you advance past the second challenge. I think they intentionally make it extra nerve wracking. 

No, I didn’t make it to the next round last year. In my heat last year, I think the top five ended at like 16? And I ended with 13. Think about that for a second. First round I got 3, second round I got 10! 
It depends on how many of the top people this round get good scores next round. So it is possible, albeit slim that we could make it to the next round if we do fabulous this weekend.

There’s something to think about for next year or my next contest that is like this. If I score good in one genre, but not the other, can I compare the two and see what maybe I did differently? Or maybe I just don’t understand some genres and need to see what it’s about? Always work on the craft!

For those who are disappointed with a low score or no score, and feel like giving up - Don't! You won't make it into the third round if you don't submit anything in round 2! But you might get great scores in the next one.
