1595 words today! Woot. I barely pulled that out. I struggled hard early in the day (some of these may need re-writing) but late night stuff turned out better. It was so rough I had to write non-linearly, i.e., not just keep forging ahead in the plot, but skip up to easier stuff. Now to go check on your guesses, and open my regular email account for the first time today, not to mention check my Twitter for the first time today.
Here were the guesses I received:
Faith B. guessed: 1543 words
Zoe S. guessed: 1542
Now Zoe, that was a neat trick, not letting Faith get away from you by guessing almost the exact same! I would call it cheap but I won't. You two were also the only pokers from today! That should solidify your lead. You were both very close, but not quite within 10 words. So you both get the +128 bonus. And the words will be divided evenly (797.5) except...
I don't want to give out half a word. So I will ask my roommate, who knows nothing about either of you, to whom I should give the bonus word.
Total scores for the day are:
Faith B. (797.5 + 128 + 1)
Zoe S. (797.5 + 128)
I won't tell you how my roommate picked, but he picked Faith. I think that means the gap is only like .5 of a word.
Time to get to bed. School night!
