So what are your rewards for meeting a writing challenge?
When I win NaNoWriMo with 50,000 words at the end of November, I'm going to break open my Gears of War 2 game. I was at the midnight sale, but I was writing.
I buckled down yesterday and wrote 3,601 words surpassing the NaNo goal of 28,339 words by 170 words. It's been a long time since I've hit a NaNo goal. My reward was to go to a free sneak preview of Twilight. Impressive movie. Now I'll have to pull the Twilight Saga books out of my TBR and read them.
When I broke 20,000 words on Nov. 13, I was ecstatic because I've been so behind when I got headaches from the days of rainy weathers. I celebrated on Saturday by watching Quantum of Solace.
When I finish Sweating with Sven, I'll have the satisfaction that I've continuously written for one of the longest periods of time.
Before NaNoWriMo, I gave myself an incentive. I bought a blue Ipod Nano. Now I can take my music everywhere and it eliminates distractions of turning on a CD player or the computer.
I'm currently grooving to the soundtracks of Kill Bill, The Best of James Bond with the original singers, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
