Haha! This was very funny... and real as well. You always have to think about your future career... at seven, lol. I love the way you wrote it; very easy to read, nice flow, and also something almost everyone can relate to! I enjoyed this very much!

Ha, this is brilliant! You've poked a little fun at writers and their "muse" while creating a wonderful bonding between mother and daughter, and lessons learned.

This seems a really advanced kid. Only seven and she already knows what a muse is. Shame she caved in so totally at the end. I think you could re-work and lengthen this as a blend of fact and fiction to make something really awesome.

    Good morning! My grandchildren are currently staying with me and I am home schooling, but in the afternoons they watch and question my dabbling at the computer with my stories. I guarantee you they have heard of my muse. LOL Thanks for reading and reviewing. I appreciate your kind words.

That's very cute! You did a great job showing us the actions as this conversation was going on. Seems like this mama was quite smart as well as her ambitious young daughter. She could have told her about how some writers got their best talks with their muses while doing dishes. Lol.
Best wishes in the contest!

Now this is a real cutie of a story and it almost sounds spot on, with a little polish. Even in our old age we have a tendency to take the easiest path or road less traveled in search of adventure and happiness. Thanks for sharing.

Dear Mystery Writer, (--wink--)

This was a really cute story about a kid who likes the idea of being a writer... but may not be FULLY committed to the idea. hahaha No matter what career choice she lands on, I imagine mom will still get her to have that garbage taken outside. Moms are kinda like that. Fun piece!

One small note:
--> Emma did as Mama asked, but continu(ed) with her story.

Thanks!

Well written! A lovely story. I was waiting for her to finally get the encouragement she needed - but then a career change happens! Good wishes for the contest.

This is a nicely written story coming from the mouth of a child. Emma's mom said set your goals higher and she opened the door. Imagine exploring the dark vast unknown. Emma didn't like the thought of going outside in the dark. Let's eat ice cream while I rethink my career. Well done. Good luck in the contest.

Ha, ha, ha a writer of course mom is going to play on game on it to show the kid what a bad idea it is:)"Oh, of course." Mama handed her a bag of garbage. "Go put this outside."

The child's eyes widened. "But it's dark outside. And my muse needs me."

"Tell him you're doing research." Mama still held the bag of garbage.

"Research? On what?" Emma looked confused. "Garbage?"

"Oh no, Emma. Set your goals higher." Opening the door, Mama added, "Imagine exploring the dark vast unknown."

It was pitch black outside. A dog barked.

Emma closed the door. "I know! Let's eat ice cream while I rethink my career." Thank you for sharing and good luck with the contest.

This is delightful story and so funny. This little girl thanks she has picked the perfect career. This one can get her our of a lot of work because she needsto be talking to her muse. The idea of have to do research in the vast unknown is something she'd not thought off. Maybe another career would suit her better,
