    For some strange reason my brain read this as mousse instead of mouse and I realized I really want a mousse muse! Probably a chocolate raspberry one.

    ...your moose muse wants mousse
    ...you’ve prioritized all your stories and picked out the two you want to finish, and the moose muse still wants to write about angsty teens and wolves (not in the same story. Although...)

    YKYAFFWW you count 25 CCs and OCs in your epic after making a dramatis personae (not including 5 'mentions of') and think 'dial back on making OCs!!'[face_cowboy]

    Thank you kindly @Findswoman; I have sixteen generations of the Acyk, Nilim and Menda clans written up and fleshed out at present :)

    ...you start listening to all of your favourite songs done as remixes to come up with a playlist for a popular fictional dance club in Coruscant that is one of the main settings for your stories *rocks out to The Prodigy's remix of Lust for Life by Iggy Pop*

    YKYAFFWW you romp in a Japanese fanart site that abounds in fun little comics maybe inspiring for ficcage, and you don't read Japanese or know if it's top to bottom, L to R, or vice versa in the comics … difficult to piece together the storyline in many … [face_dunno]

    *pats shoulder* There, there, now. I raised bunnies commercially for years and their lifespan is only … oh, two to eight … years … :_| Actually, bunnies are particularly apt as a metaphor, because females can get pregnant while pregnant due to their double horned uterus.[face_hypnotized]

    ...you ponder how to reward yourself for wrangling the moose back on track on one of your priority stories. Chocolate seems like a good idea...
