Epic Win!  
Today is the day of awesome and win. I won NaNo, just barely, and I've not posted the chapter because the last 4,000 words I needed are cobbled together bits that will be in later chapters, but I can't post by themselves and have them make sense to anyone but me. Next chapter will be up soon, though, after I finish the next chapter of Song of the Broken Hearted because I miss it epically.

In other news, I started my new job Friday. First day was boring. I worked open to close today, though, and I win! :D We've got goals corporate sets for certain things, like signing customers up for credit cards and a parenting magazine. First day on the floor, and not only did I meet or beat the goals, I kicked the manager's butt at them. The district manager comes in on Wednesday to give me my second interview and hopefully promote me to assistant manager. *crosses fingers*

There was some family :Fail, and I came home and had to mop dog poo off the bathroom, but somehow I can't seem to find it in me to be terribly bothered about that.

Lucky you. ~managed only 2508 words this month and is forced to set more realistic goals of averaging 10,000 words a month to try and get 100,000 by this time next year~

Well, I had the advantage of being unemployed until the day after Thanksgiving, so i had nothing better to do when I wasn't chasing the little one, except to write. Hey, that's a good goal, too! Best of luck!

That really is great! I won too, and luckily my story is finished so now I have time to write and read fics. I missed it so much.
Rachelinugrlrayn on December 1st, 2008 06:20 am (UTC)
Yeah, I sympathize completely. I've missed reading and working on other fics.

Woo! Congrats on NaNo and the new job. That's awesome. ;>

As much as I love Dirge of the Fallen, I'm excited for a new chapter of Song of the Broken Hearted. Looking forward to both, hon.

:D thanks!

I miss Song sooooo much. I'm happy to be working on it again.

I missed the mark by about 8,000 words.

Aww, well 42K is still nothing to turn up your nose at! Congrats on getting to that point :)

Congratulations on both accomplishments! You wrote a story I am really enjoying, and are already taking charge at the new job. What a week!
Rachelinugrlrayn on December 3rd, 2008 03:53 am (UTC)
:) Thanks! I'm glad you're liking it so far. Theoretically, there will be some more up very soon. Tomorrow I get my interview for the management position I'm gunning for. *crosses fingers*

Wow you kick ass girl!!!! Great work on both fronts. Sorry about the housefail; just remember you can't have it all XD despite what they say--successful working moms with serious hobbies have dirty carpets at home. I've made my peace with that :D
Rachelinugrlrayn on December 3rd, 2008 03:54 am (UTC)
*hugs* thanks sweetie. Yeah, I've sort of come to terms with the house fail, and the family fail was a sister of mine (I have five), so at least it's not in my home where I can't get away from it.

Did you miss me?? Congrats on the Nano win. I have decided that I am the Susan Lucci of Nano....another year where I lose. Kept having computer issues and had people working on it but no one fixed it. I kept losing my access to the net. By the time I finally got it to someone who knew what they were doing (A MIT graduate in the middle of nowhere (his words not mine)) my computer was dead and I lost everything. I did not back up because I did not know what was wrong and did not want to continue my problem. I got a new computer last night and am trying to find all my sites again. You are one of my firsts. Happy that you finished nano, got a new job, and sorry about the dog poo. I will eventually catch up with all your stories. I missed them and you! Hope all is well. Merry Christmas. Best wishes. cat and jazz
ps need help finding all my fma sites...all suggestions are welcome. Bye for now.c (jazz just came up and tried to type hi...I have an interesting cat.)
Rachelinugrlrayn on December 21st, 2008 01:38 am (UTC)
Hey you! Long time no see, darlin! *hugs* So, are you back now? Sorry about your luck with the computer and internet. :( What kind of sites are you wanting? I'll see what I can come up with for you. I finally did a master list for my fics, though I've been too lazy to update it with the new stuff. :F Things are pretty decent here. Hope all is well with you! Merry Christmas to you and jazz! I hope to hear from you again soon!

Thanks for the welcome back. I thought everyone forgot about me! hahah. I have lost everything especially all that has to do with the FMA world. Anything is appreciated. How is your life. Looks like things have been interesting. I saw your address so I will send you a card soon. Are you ready for Christmas? Does your daughter know Christmas or Santa yet? The last time you offered something I outed my address on your site and had to go back and delete it. I think it was regarding getting a FMA ornament. Too bad you took Zakai's address down...I would have sent a card...wonder how many she would have got? hahahaha. Wish you all well. Take care. cat
Rachelinugrlrayn on December 21st, 2008 04:05 am (UTC)
Aww, I didn't forget about you! I'll try and track down some good fma stuff for you, then. Aww, that's sweet of you. Actually, if you'd like a card, comment on that post with your addy. It's screened so no one but you and I will be able to see it. I'm still working on the ornaments too, so I'll get them out as soon as I have a working mold again. I had a bunch of ornaments done, but they kinda... died. Actually, Zakai has her own card post somewhere on her LJ with her addy. I mostly just copy/pasted her post XD. I only wish I was ready for Christmas. Alexis just turned one back in October, so she doesn't really understand the holidays, but maybe next year she will. It'll be fun anyway.
