Win and lose?
I think I'm going to "win" Nanowrimo because it's all about quantity, not quality, but I'm not sure I'm going to "win" the Japanese Language Proficiency Test I'm taking in a month--yikes! One month! There's still a lot to learn, and I haven't taken any type of test since 1999, and haven't taken the Japanese Proficiency Test since 1993 (level 3). I'm taking level 2 this year, and I'll be lucky if I get half of those questions right. All that kanji and difficult vocabulary and grammar questions will be staring at me, wanting answers. I might let them down!
But I'm not worried--if I don't pass this year, I'll try again next year. This year could be considered a trial run. But it would be nice to get that sparkling certificate in the mail.

Good luck with your exams!
It's only one test, actually, but thanks.
Good luck on the novel! I hope you'll keep us posted on how it goes.
Thanks. Actually, you can't really write a proper novel in a month, unless you're some kind of gifted super-human. It's just a very rough draft, a bunch of words and ideas put down in haste.
