The Muse Strikes Again!

My Muse struck again! I guess she thought that I should be finished with Michael's Folly so she gave me an entire new book this morning sometime between waking up and being fully awake.
It's a great story and it's kind of an answer to something that I was hoping to write someday. I guess according to my Muse, someday has arrived. There is a huge demand in today's market for Young Adult genre books and I have never written anything even remotely appropriate for Young Adults... well when I was in 7th grade I wrote a one page story that I suppose would fit the bill. Anyway, I got this image of a teenager and her two friends going into a burned out, but not entirely destroyed town. The town is inside of another town, in the middle and walled off. The teenagers jump the wall and go inside to see what is going, why is this section walled off? Why does no-one fix it or tear it down and rebuild? When they get inside they find out why, the place is haunted and not just haunted but haunted by witches that are not very nice. Their neighbors tried to kill them by burning down the city and when even in death they wouldnt die they walled the city off and now stand guard. But there are innocent ghosts in there too and they want to know if my hero and her friends will help save them.
I got some great images. In one image the child ghost of a little girl is pulled from her rotten corpse only to say "Shall I scream now like your friend Sally did?" The shere terror on the living teenagers was precious.
Inanother image I saw my hero being confronted by her friend who said, "If you dont stop asking questions they're going to make you touch the wall."
She replies, "So what, it's a wall."
Her friend shakes her head and says, "Your parents made them mad and they were forced to touch the wall... and now they're dead."
My hero gets angry. "My parents died in an airplane crash."
Her friend is still shaking her head. "Are you sure?"
I got more but I'm still trying to figure them all out. I guess I had better finish Michael's Folly.
In other news, I have accepted a job as a freelance writer. Hopefully the money that I make doing that will help me to fill in the gaps where the State is taking my money to pay for someone elses entitlement. I wish that I was lazy and without a consciense then I could drop out of life and live off of others. I just can't do it.
Anyway, I'm really excited about writing in this manner. The first couple of jobs that I took really made me think quickly. If I'm going to make any money at this thing I need to crank things out quickly and still have quality. Until I can start setting my own price tags on my work it will be a bit tough but all good things will come to those that wait, but dont wait idly. This job is something that I have been working to achieve for several months. It's really exciting! I'll let you know as I have things published.
Okay, so I have a lot of work to do. Remember the Zombie run and the March AgainstChild Abuse and be good to each other.

My husband and i felt absolutely ecstatic when Raymond could conclude his homework out of the precious recommendations he made through your web page. It's not at all simplistic to simply be giving out thoughts which often people might have been selling. So we take into account we've got the website owner to appreciate for that. Those illustrations you've made, the easy site menu, the friendships your site give support to instill - it's got everything great, and it's leading our son and our family feel that this subject matter is satisfying, which is certainly quite indispensable. Thank you for all!
