Week One, 2009, abbreviated

| No Comments

The fiction department's week goes from Sunday to Saturday, so by our measure we've just completed week one of submissions, which was only three days long.

The daily submission volume went 45, 33, 25. Here's a comparison with the first seven days after reopening in the past few years:

(Data from days 4 through 7 of 2009 added later.)

Year Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Day 6 Day 7 Average/ Day
2009 (Jan) 45 33 25 22 31 29 28 30
2008 (July) 73 33 28 16 25 21 24 31
2008 (Jan) 45 27 25 24 17 15 17 24
2007 (Jan) 33 40 35 23 18 12 10 24
2006 (Jan) 23 22 24 21 11 8 12 17
2005 (Jan) 14 15 16 11 17 8 14 14

Note that we did one-month closures up to 2006, so the "2007 (Jan)" line is after a one-month closure. We did two-month closures starting in 2007, so the 2008 (Jan) line is after a two-month closure. And we did a pair of two-month closures in 2008, so the 2008 (July) and 2009 (Jan) lines are both after two-month closures.
