NaNoWriMo 2015: Day 17

Today I managed one paragraph (well, a paragraph plus one sentence), and I only did that because I didn't want to ruin my update-every-day streak I have going with my word count. So, you get the paragraph in its entirety, because why not?

Naomi summoned the team before the end of the day, as promised, and announced that Brad was moivng to another department. Kathleen was impressed that though her team did not manage to hide their happiness, they did at least keep themselves from outright cheering. If she hadn’t had warning that this was going to happen, she wasn’t sure she could have kept herself from being visibly delighted. However, Naomi did not give them any otehr details, so Kathleen had to go home that evening not knowing who her next supervisor would be.

She was prepared to live with the suspense.

I've been this Kathleen. I was glad I knew ahead of time, too. The suspense was more reliable than the outgoing supervisor.

Hey, a paragraph is good. There are some days I don't get a single word down.

@Sharlan: I've been this Kathleen, too. And I agree with the suspense being more reliable, although I didn't think about that while writing it.

@Crystal: Yeah, I almost went to bed without writing anything, but then remembered NaNo has a badge this year for updating every day, and I don't want to screw that up. I should probably not be this motivated by a digital shiny thing, but... I totally am.
