I'm working on my novel for NaNoWriMo this weekend. I've got until Sunday night to finish it. I've written 27,000 words and need to get to 50,000. Let's see -- three weeks to get half of it finished, four days to finish the second half. I can do it. I know I can. Of course, what I'm writing is terrible. But that's not the point. The point is that I'll have written a novel when this is over. Even if it's a bad novel, it's one more novel than most people have written, so that's a start.
