You earn one point for every day you write at least 250 words, plus one point for every day in your unbroken chain (capped at 30). So, for instance, on day one you'd earn two points (one for writing 250 words, one for establishing a chain of length one), on day two you'd earn three points (one point for 250 words again, plus two points for a chain of length two), and so on. If you miss a day, you drop back to zero.
9
You earn bonus points for writing more words: 250 words = one point, 500 words = two points, 1000 words = three points, 2000 words = four points.
10
You will earn far more points for hitting your daily minimum consistently than from writing in bursts. Someone who hits the minimum every day for a month will write 7,250 words but earn nearly 500 points. Someone who writes 2,000 words every other day will end the month with 30,000 words but only 75 points. Big difference. Consistency is key.

New Features
12
Find an open track and add your name. Find the August sheets on the tabs below--AugSC if you're a Stonecoaster, any of AugISBW sheets if you're a listener of I Should Be Writing or the new AugGplus sheet if you found your way here from Google+ . Fill in your daily word count along the top line (words).

If you want to personalize your track with funky colors, please stick to the white/light-gray areas.

There's now a designated spot for your twitter handle or blog.

Thanks to Mark Lindberg for these numbers [at left] showing how many points we need to level-up.
He had them posted over on the FB page but I thought it would be a good idea to put them where people could find them more easily.

I've just created a Google+ community for those of you who prefer that or aren't on Facebook. I don't use Google+ much, so I'm not sure how to share the URL, or if that's even possible, but it's called "Magic Spreadsheet."
