NaNo Rewards!

Every year, I set myself a little list of goals to accomplish for NaNo. Sometimes they're detailed [last year, they were detailed]; some years, they are simply: "Get 50k and survive working at the same time" [that was 2008 and probably this year]. But, regardless of how detailed my goals are, I always make sure to have something to reward myself with, depending on the level I achieve. Usually based on Word Count. [last year's is here... I still owe myself my hoodie and my shopping spree; I've been too focused on moving out to spend $100 on myself this year.]

So, I intend to do the same this year.

25,000 Words: $10 junk food shopping spree [ie - a bag of frosted animal crackers, a bag of jellybeans, and a green & black bar]
50,000 Words: Ticket to the Dashboard Confessional show on 28 November
100,000 Words: Permission to buy a full outfit, sans shoes but plus accessories.
150,000 Words: $50 Amazon Shopping spree
200,000 Words: Disney weekdays annual pass.

For each additional 100k, I can allow myself to spend an additional $50 shopping for non-necessities [ie - clothes, shoes, books on amazon.com, pogo gems, etc].

And, on the super off-chance that I actually make my lofty goal of 500k, I get to go on my "research trip" to London in the spring when flying is cheaper again.



And those are my goals. Yaaaay! [also, realistically this year, the place I intend to hit is the 150k. That's the big goal this year. But, I will forever have higher goals to reach for.] Share with me your goals? [[:

I always go in hoping for 50k and go from there. It depends on the story (and in this case how WriDay goes) but drill sergeant is dead set on 150k despite me almost going on Oxycontin to combat wrist pains last year.
