Mind ended up at like 997. My first draft broke 1,300 though so I don't give myself too much credit.

Phew, people are moving quick. I'm still sitting only on a little brainstorm draft, given that there's still over two weeks of time. However my sheet is done, so there's that.

Surprisingly, my submission came out to 670 words. <shrug> I might go back and add a little but I like it the way it is so it might stay

If it's as long as it needs to be, then it's as long as it needs to be imo. Don't pad it out just because there's a high limit.

I mean relative to the current word count of the submission. Having a few hundred words' breathing space doesn't mean it's a gaping void that needs to be filled.

Question for the wordcount: When it says all visible words in the application, does that include the spoilerbutton text, secret text words or any fieldset titles? I only ask because I have finished mine and it accidentally came out at 999 words. Not really much in the way of wiggle-room..

Hey, I was also wondering about the 4th a d 5th of july, after roubd 0 review- we get a cluple of days to edit applications based on judges reviews?

If there were mechanical errors to the character sheet, you are expected to correct them, but apart from that there is no editing of the applications, if I remember correctly.

Yep, I saw that, but my itchiness of being so close to the wire just wanted confirmation

What Blackfyre said - however if you get feedback you can always apply that to posts going forward, which should help you do better in the competition.
