My favorite line out of today's ~4,000 words
> "...," I said eloquently.

The end is in sight! Three more days, a little over 7500 words to go, and I seem to have reached the end of the Doom Novella's actual plot arc, meaning that I might (gasp) actually get back to writing Something Else for the remaining duration of the NaNo, the same way that I was supposed to be doing all month.

On the other hand, my muse is helpfully supplying another entire novel's worth of material to continue the existing story where I'm leaving off. "What you didn't actually know," Muse says, dressed as the protagonist and cackling and rubbing his hands evilly, "is that what you've written was really only the prologue to the Actual Adventure. Are you doing anything important in December?"

And my Inner Author gets up, does a Macaulay-Culkin-in-Home-Alone face slap, and runs screaming out of the house.

Darth Real Life: Get dressed. You've got to eat breakfast, then the leaves need raking, and do you know that you have class on Monday? Remember what happens when you don't do your homework?

Muse: *hiding, whispering* Chimera. Human chimera, mosaic of two people, patchwork face, ENDLESS ANGST but actually if she's 501st it won't be endless. Huh.

Me: *distracted* Patchwork skin - I've seen that on Wikipedia! It's got a name and everything!

Muse: Yeah, but why would she or anyone know the name? Maybe 6981. I mean, he is sort of Thrawn. Yeah. Yeah! And he's tried to hide that fact, but not only do makeup and sunglasses utterly fail at that, he cares less and less if people know!

DRL: I'm still here. You can only put me off for so long. I will make you more and more uncomfortable until I win, and then you will rail against yourself for wasting so much time.

Oooh. My muse's nemesis isn't Darth Real Life, though - it's Darth Apathy. Bastard.

I wouldn't call DRL my muse's nemesis, though my muse is terrified of her. Honestly, I like DRL. My life is so much smoother when I listen to her.

I don't think I've had many dealings with Darth Apathy. The Lord of Distractions, now...
