funny statistic about NOÖ Journal and the Million Writers Award

Jason Sanford has been posting some cool statistics about the Million Writers Award at his blog. Here's one I'd like to add: Because we're such slackers, NOÖ only published one issue in 2009. In that issue, only two of our stories were over 1000 words (thereby meeting the criteria for Million Writers Award Story Notability): Kim Chinquee's "One Below" and Crispin Best's "At the End of This Story Three Months Will Pass." Both stories, however, won Notable Story mentions. Therefore (you probably see where this is going) 100% of NOÖ's eligable 2009 fiction won Million Writer Awards. Not that we're competitive or anything, but I hate losing at tennis, and I like posting 100% in large font. Next round's on us, eh? Thanks to all our contributors and submitters for allowing us to showcase such amazing work. We're here because you're awesome!
