Oi! You there! Get back to work on your IF Comp game!

Hello, procrastinating writer. I see you there, hunched over your keyboard with coffee/wine/chocolate in hand (ONE AT A TIME YOU FOOL) and a look of creeping despair on your face.

You can do it. There’s a whole week of time left!

Go you.

Brian Rushton’s predictions are uncanny.

BURN THE WITCH.

It’s a simple case of analytics. His experience as an IF historian who has played (and reviewed) an exhaustive number of entries from previous years makes him uniquely positioned to predict future outcomes.

But yeah, it’s pretty spooky.

You know what is really spooky? That I reference this particular Mony Python joke in my upcoming IFComp game. So in joking about predictions, you’ve actually made a correct prediction.

You’re all witches!

Consider this your witch teaser. (Also, I’m seeing a typo to fix. Huh.)
