Me & My Muse – Day 22: Story Time

Today, I’m just going to cut right to the chase.  I am so excited to begin on my new story: The Tale of Zachary Willowbrook – The School Years.  It will be my second book in my The Tale of Zachary Willowbrook trilogy.

So what’s going on with the first book?  This will be mentioned in a separate post.  For the super short version, I just finished editing the manuscript for The Tale of Zachary Willowbrook – A Leap Day Paradox and I sent it to a friend who’s an editor.  In the meantime, I’ll be working on my new book.

Now, without further ado, I will now end this and get star….

 

Muse:  Tell me a story!  Tell me a story!

What do I look like, a kindergarten teacher?

Muse:  Ah, um….yes?

Sorry.  No time for stories today.

Muse:  But I saw your title!  Story Time!  That means you tell me a story, right?

Wrong.  This is not a kindergarten circle.  Story Time means that it’s time for me to begin on my new story.

Muse:  But I want to hear one!  Come on!  Come on!  Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese?

No stories.  I want to get started on School Years!

Muse:  Pretty please with cherries on top?

No.

Muse:  With sprinkles and almonds and chocolate pieces?

I don’t care how many toppings you put on your please‘s.  I’m not telling you a story.  Besides.  You never take your medication, so why should I do anything for you in return?

Muse:  Be right back.

 

Maybe I should try to end this before she returns.  The weather’s about back to normal with a high of 76.  Today’s silver lining is obvious.  I’ll be starting on my….

Muse:  There.  Took my medication!  Can you tell me a story now?

Is it bedtime?

Muse:  No.

Then no story.  Now run along now, okay?

Muse:  Come on!  Please!

No.

Muse:  Please!

Enough!

Muse:  Please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please!

No no no no no no no no NO!

Muse:  please please please please plea…..

OKAY OKAY!  I’ll tell you  a story!  How about this one.

Muse:  Tee hee hee hee hee!!!

Once upon a time, there was an annoying Muse who just wouldn’t leave me alone.

Muse:  That Muse is a meanie!

Quiet please.  We don’t talk during the story.  Now this Muse was persistent, and she kept bothering this poor man.  All the poor man wanted to do was start his new story, but he couldn’t.  The annoying Muse wouldn’t leave him alone.

So the poor man finally had it.  He raised his voice and shouted SO LOUD AT THE ANNOYING MUSE that she cried all the way back to her room.  So the man was now happy and the annoying Muse was now sad.  And the man lived happily ever after.  The end.

Muse:  That annoying Muse is so mean!  When I find her, I’ll….

YOU’RE THAT ANNOYING MUSE IN THAT STORY! NOW LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!

Muse:  I hate that story!  WAAAAAAAAAH!!!!

 

There.  She’s gone.  The silver lining will be starting on my new story.

To all of you who don’t have annoying Muses to deal with, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

 

Muse:  That’s it.  Kyle’s been mean to me far too many times.  Oh, he’ll get what’s coming to him very soon.  That, I promise.  Tee hee hee hee hee!
