My Theory in an Unusual Blog Contest
The Valentine's Date recently won the February Creative Carnival contest over at Write Stuff. The winning entry, which is a very funny story with a very unexpected ending, and truly deserved to win, appears to be just about 200 words long, or perhaps a little over.
For that reason, I'm going to guess that 205 is Be A Good Dad's new favourite number because that's the word count in a story of his that just won a contest. Of course, I'd have to know the exact word counting method he uses, or probably the software, to have any way to be absolutely sure. Still, that's my theory, and I'm sticking to it.
Actually, when I read the contest rules, I remembered the story, and I was pretty sure then that it had been about 200 words. I went over there to look, and I'm very sure it falls somewhere between 175-225, and my bet is just slightly over 200. I'll soon know if I'm right...
