My Motivation Went to Vegas with Tessa's Muse, or NaNo Day 5

Word Count: 8,716

Mood: Impressed that I managed to make my goal for the day.

Surprises: Somehow the random upstairs neighbor that bounded into the novel on Day 1 is cute and adorably friendly. Not a love interest, but a fun character to have around. Didn't see that one coming AT ALL. Also, Evva's best friend is kind of funky and a bit of a rebel. I'm fairly certain she's going to die, even though she wasn't supposed to. This is depressing me. A lot.

So today I was supposed to be super duper productive and get all this homework done and spend time getting ahead on my word count for later this month. Yeah. It's all my fault really, because I allowed myself to get sucked into Facebook and Twitter. Did manage to get some stuff done, just not as much as I had hoped.

Anyhoo... I ended up in this Twitter conversation with Mia Hayson and Tessa Conte and it was pretty hilarious. Among other things Tessa asked if anyone had seen her muse and I told her it had probably run off with my motivation. We also determined that they apparently stole Mia's chocolate and went off to Vegas to GAMBLE IT ALL AWAY. hahahaha! Okay, so maybe you had to be there, but these are the kinds of conversations that are only made possible through Twitter and NaNo word count despair.

So how has your productivity been? Had any random conversations lately? Can I use them in my novel? :D

LOL I'm behind on my wordcount, my muse is still AWOL and I'm thinking of giving up in favour of some other story.

All par for the course, of course.

Honestly I'm probably ahead on my word count but I am behind where I wanted to be if that makes sense.


I want my chocolate back! *shakes fist* I'm about to send my people in to win it back though so no worries! Zombies to the rescue!
