NaNo - Day 28 belated  
My old NaNo record is at 89,796 words. I'm not sure I can beat that this year. Not much time left to go for 8000 words. My story won't be finished in another 8000 words, but just for fun and the challenge I'm going to try. It's not like I have anything else to do.

Going for the expanded graph again:
My NaNoWriMo Progress
It looks like I'm right on target for the 90k ;) Now, all I need to do is get started with the writing.

There is some news in rl. I might be moving up in my job. I work only six hours per week, but since I have started they have hired two new assistants and one of the supervisors is retiring at the end of the year. The other supervisor has said she'd like to make me a supervisor as well, but she's not sure whether the school will be all right with that since I have no formal training in education or social work. I have worked with kids since I was in junior high school, first as a volunteer and then after moving back here, in the after-school program. Being a supervisor would mean better pay and actually having to come up with stuff to do and plan stuff. I'm not sure I'm up for that, but I can use any work experience considering how many jobs I have had in the last few years.

90K words? I'm not sure I have that many words in me for anything, although I'd love to try. Have you discussed elsewhere the plot of your story? I'd really like to know what it is.

Apparently I'm too stupid to reply to a comment...

My 2003 NaNo, and record so far, was a Without a Trace fanfic with rather little plot and a lot of (not so probable) action. A crazy tale of kidnapping, a cult that was a front for criminal enterprises, crooked FBI agents, a little conspiracy, a lot of whumping, mind-altering drugs and some shippy-ness.
This year's NaNo story started out with Mindscape which I have already posted on my lj (although I should probably have done some better editing) and because I didn't have 50k words when I was done, I started on the sequel 'You can never go home again'. In the sequel, a security review comes to Atlantis to investigate the recent events and John's father is part of that review group. It goes all downhill from there ;-)

Thank you for reminding me to finish "Mindscape"! I'm really enjoying the fics out this fall, and yours starts out great. I'm loloking forward to reading the sequel, also.
