Here's an excerpt from the email I just got from Chris Baty of NaNoWriMo:

In just one week, the sun will be setting on this year's NaNoWriMo. As the light of the contest starts to dim in the final days, we will likely still be out on that hill, still struggling towards 50K.

This is good. Very good. Because, as humans, we come into our own in these do-or-die moments. Deadlines mint miracles every time. Want proof? Think of all the papers we've written at 2 AM. All the projects that have been nowhere-near presentable that we've salvaged at the zero hour. Having a life as busy as yours means you have to leave some big undertakings till the very last minute; it's just how things get done.

But now NaNoWriMo's last minute has arrived. The world needs your book. It's time to make your move.

This is so TOTALLY TRUE -- and it's US all over!!!

I think about all those PowerPoints and other things we get done last minute and it makes me smile. Man, we're so good last minute! (heh)

We might still make it. God knows we're both stubborn enough!

Go, US!

I do love that Chris Baty. He gets it.
