I really don't know life at all

Summary:

 To seek refuge from her dark, depressing life, five-year-old Angela gets "adopted" by a group of friends called the Crayon Triplets--Blue, Violet, and Indigo. Th boy named Indigo becomes her closest friend. His father works at an art museum, and he dreams of being an artist. They share a brief time of being innocent kid friends on the playground, but then Indigo's dysfunctional family leaves town.

Six years later, twelve-year-old Angela is convinced that Indigo lives at the Metropolitan Museum, so she stows away on a bus to New York City. She spends a terrifying night darting around statues and exhibits before hitch-hiking home.

At eighteen, Angela goes to New York again, for art college. She encounters Indigo in a burn ward at the hospital, and he has truly messed up his life.

not published, but last summer i wrote a 277 page novel about a girl named lyra. (techniccly) realistic fiction. and I would call interwoven wolves a full length book. 'season' one I lost published on ti as a book. the first chapter from the art of courage(the novel I talked about) is on ti, but I wrote it by hand and that's all that's typed up.

that was cool, you should write a full length book at some point, like 20 chapters or something.
if you like, id love to help. I've never written something with another person before, but I can try. because presumably you wouldn't want to write something so long because it would take ages, but I was the faster witer in a writing class I took of people interested in writing. just a thought.
