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.

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.
