I love statistics. Stats are a way to tell stories with numbers. But in this case they're a way to tell you the numbers about a story.

Specifically they're telling you about my current NaNoWriMo novel, Exchange Magic.

Since keeps stats on how many views each page has had, I can see roughly which chapters are getting read. I would have suspected that it would be a pretty standard taper; earlier chapters get read more, since they're near the top of the page, later chapters get read less as they're on page 2 or 3, and people fall off of the story as they go. But here's the top ten chapters, with their ordinal in red next to them.

I have no idea what happened when Chapter 6 came out that made it the second most popular page on my little story site.

And I don't really have a “thesis” for this post, either. It's just interesting to see how things fall out.
