1784 words

... written! I'm on track, 200 words per day, to reach 6000 by November 30 for NaNoWriMo. Yay! My students are having fun writing their novels. Almost all of them are reaching daily word count goals. Some are surpassing their goals, which leads me to think I should set the standard higher next time. (Definitely higher next year when they're in 8th grade.)

The only downer has been one student (yeah, there's gotta be one) who's testing the outer limits of what's appropriate for school. The bright side of that problem is another student giving me the solution - give a movie rating! So I'm going to tell my classes tomorrow - keep it PG.
