Slow down. This isn't a school assignment. You don't get credit for finishing early. And, try as you might, you won't write a novel in a day. Spend time getting to know the characters. Day dream. Rethink the plot. Revisit the setting until you can taste the salt in the sea. Learn to show rather than tell. Re-write the dialogue so that the characters own their own voice. For all the talk of writing being a marathon, that's not it at all. It's much more like making love. Take your time, be a little less selfish and you'll find that the climax will be as powerful as the journey itself.
