Commenting before things are live is weird. Necromancy has gotten pretty advanced these days.
It wasn't listed in the blogs when I commented. :P
Is it still necromancy if it has to do with things before they are even alive (let alone dead)? Asking for a friend, since I would obviously never have anything to do with the dark arts... 🙄
Depends on your definition of necromancy.
I now see new ways to get around possible rules against the dark arts... for a friend.
Congrats to all the authors who have completed this year's writathon!
Even more so for those who basically overdid it all!
Oh also, reminder that the recommendations feature is in early testing, it has only come out recently. And in my opinion it is working quite well, though stil could be improved by a lot.
Yes. This is only the Alpha version, we are already working on tweaking it, and improving it completly.
Thank you for including me in on the last! I apologize for being wrong about the dates. Glad I was able to reach 55k so soon! :D
Would be nice to edit our comments here...
Looks like I accidentally snatched 8th place. Oops :D
Congratz to everyone, that is quite the list of stories reaching the 55,555. Well done!
Congrats to all the winners. Pleasantly surprised by how many people managed to complete a tough challenge. Well done!
Great job to all the people that passed the mark! It's a small and wonderful group of stories.
Congratz all who finished writing!
Wow... so many? 😲
70 or did I miscount?
Congratulations to my fellow participants!
The tag is fine, so long as none of it was written during the period of the contest, I believe?
Good job to all of the writers that knocked it out of tha park this past month! 55,555 words is not easy, but all of you made it look like a walk in the park. You are all awesome!
Congratulations dear author's for the job well done as well for the grind. Okay, time to check them one by one - it's high time to binge these novels.
Hope you enjoy it man, everyone did their best. ^.^
Man, I'm really glad I managed to complete the challenge (even if barely, and 3 hours before the deadline at that). What can I say, it's been a blast, folks.
Congrats on making the list!
Thank you for reading. You were one of the first people to read my fiction on RR, one of the first to comment and leave feedback, and that means a lot to me. I hope you enjoy what's coming.
Ar'kendrithyst participating even without a rush, lmao
Well done everyone! Looking forward to reading this all over the next few weeks
Well gone for all who made the list!
To those who didn't, yet attempted, I will also commend as those that completed know it was no small feat to even attempt.
Book Keeper on
Haha, was hoping to see an exact 55,555 or even double at 111,110 😄
Congrats to all winners!

Congrats to the winners!
How did the wondering inn not make the list? She writes on average twice that per month over the last 3 or 4 years.
She probably didn't participate then?
Participants had to enter their stories by submitting a form if they wanted to be considered.
Continue on your journey to find the depths within. The sky is the limit and you have started to reach for more. Good job and showing us the leader you are. Interesting read.
Will there be another one soon? I kinda want to get in on this if I can heh.
Can someone tell me how good that "Recommended Stories for You" feature is? I'm thinking of subscribing this/next month. Thanks.
Where is the Wandering Inn
Pirateaba had to specifically submit/register the story to be considered for the challenge.
