I need a solution for a petition site...

Muse Objective: Form must capture email, write those emails to a file (one per line), and display running number of submissions onsite

Muse cannot do this.  I seriously doubt there is any  Muse widget for this either.   Bottom line, as soon as you need something outside the Muse box of widgets, you're kind of stuck because you must have access to the entire code --  both client side and server-side which Muse does not provide. 

To give you an example of what's involved, the petition script below uses HTML, JavaScript, CSS + PHP + a MySQL database.  To do this right, you will need a code editor like Dreamweaver.

Hey nyds0806,

Form data is received in an email so can be saved in any format.

If you are referring to anything specific like hosting or a CMS then please let me know.

Alternatively, you can try Google forms which can be created from google sheet and then auto-save data will be done in google sheet.

For your second query I will have to say a polite no as it is something outside the Muse's boundary.

I wasn't even able to find any third party widget for the same.

Regards,

Ankush

Not sure about the code, you can probably take help of open source code communities like Stack overflow to get an answer for this.

Any code expert in this community can also jump in with their insights.

Best,

No.  HTML forms don't DO anything.  Orders for data gathering & processing come from the server-side (PHP) script to which the HTML form is attached.   This is an advanced coding project.   If you're not well versed in code, you might need to hire an expert to help you.
