1. DENIAL: I didn't sign up for this.

6. PROJECTION: You guy don't really want me to do this anyway.
7. INTELLECTUALIZATION: Ya know, forcing yourself to stick to an arbitrary goal could actually be counterproductive to the project as a whole.
8. RATIONALIZATION: Really, even if I had stuck with this, what would I have accomplished? 3000 words wouldn't really make a difference anyway, would it?
9. REGRESSION: goo goo gah gah
