January or Bust Day 8 and 9 Summary

Looks like the poke wars have come down to just Faith and Zoe. Or have they?
Anyway, Day 8 I wrote 536 words. On that day (January 20th) I was poked by.... oh my... Let me check my records more closely... only Zoe. You, who brought me to Holy Worlds, are not my last fan apparently. That will strengthen your lead considerably. All 536 words to Zoe.
Day 9... is just Zoe and I will count my dad because he asked about my writing (surprise, Dad! If you ever find this you got in on the game!). I will use a six-sided die to decide how to split the half word. Evens for Zoe and odds for Dad...
It's Dad's. He claims 357 words, and Zoe claims 356.
Now, if someone can come and prove they poked me on those days, the scores will be adjusted. I am just saying my records aren't showing it.
Congrats, Zoe for building your lead! That game is not over, though, because once I invent a way of claiming bonus words in advance of the divisions (like I did for Day 1) then a come-back is possible.
Other note: it looks like I may finish the draft in advance of deadline. If that happens, then I will keep the game going through January anyway and find a way to create a word value for revising and editing. Those numbers will probably be very high with how I count them, so the last few days may prove to be of critical importance!


  1. *ahem* I did poke you on Monday in the comment section. Here is the quote:

    "And here is your poke/encouragement for the day:

    "Trust in the Lord and do good;
    Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
    Delight yourself in the Lord;
    And He will give you the desires of your heart.
    Commit your way to the Lord,
    Trust also in Him, and He will do it."~Psalm 37:3-5 NASB"

    Good job, Zoe. You managed to pull ahead on the day when I was on the computer for probably a total of an hour for personal use. :P In other words, I have a very good excuse. :D

    I'll update the totals later when I have a more accurate update and have more energy. *mumblesabouthavingastupidheadcoldthatcausesthinkingtobepracticallyimpossible*

  2. I'm starting to wonder how many dice you have in your dorm.
