This is great! I almost always surpass the NaNo goal of 50,000 words -- I think my average is probably in the 90k range. But this year, with my stress level, my day-job work level, and my energy level, I'm just hoping to get the story down. I don't even have a clue what word count it might be but I have specific places in the story that I hope to be at the end of Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, and Week 4. I still plan to reach the end of the story by the end of NaNo: that's my goal. It might mean I have to go back and add A LOT to each section, but even if each section is 5,000 words or less, that's still WAY more than I'd have ever achieved otherwise, even though it's way less than I usually manage.

I agree that sometimes competing is fun, but you make a good point: as soon as it stops being fun, you need to focus on something else.
Biggest Project: Revising Cipher's Code and starting Harriet's Thesis (both part of a series).
Also working on a variety of other stuff, including poems and short stories.
