I don't think anyone here is worrying. It's just simple curiosity.

So, let's all worry about what you CAN conrol - your writing (and querying)...
I just finished a page one rewrite of my UNTITLED FEMALE SPACE THRILER and am now on to a first draft of a low-budget thriller. Time for a quick milk and cookies reward!!! Then back to the keyboard....

Circle jerk?

I'll have you know I've never jerked in a circle.

But it sounds like it could be fun!

Just curious about about how others' numbers compare....?
Lauri, you're way too good a writer to be bogged down in BL statistics all day, praying to God a producer finds your script. What's your manager doing?

Yeah, why get judgy about other people's interests? I enjoy stats and live baseball, but I have no interest in fantasy baseball. And I don't go on fantasy baseball sites and diss people who hang out there.

Also, it's worthwhile for consumers to know what "mileage" others are getting from their BL investment. And this can lead to useful discussions about factors that can increase (or decrease) the download ratio.

And it's not like the 3 minutes or so it takes to post is a serious drain on writing time.
