Blog Fodder ...

You guys, I am all writer's blocked on my blog. I feel like it's gotten flat. I'll get inspired this weekend, I promise. I have been reading Anne Rice's book "The Feast Of All Saints" for, seriously, 12 years. I am now on page 86. It reads really, really slow but I know it will eventually pick up. It's an old book and is based on the mulatto society in New Orleans in the 19th century.

My friend Joe's condo in the French Quarter was built in 1850, and he told me the neatest story about its original owner, who he suspects was a town mistress for a plantation owner. It's such a wonderful story to think about, I don't care if it's true or not.

I loved this door, which belongs to his next-door neighbor. One of the book treatments I'm working on (fiction) is based in New Orleans, so I get inspired when I visit. Maybe I'll share a little bit of the manuscript once it's a tad more developed.

Let me know if you'd be interested in reading it.

Your blog is soooo not flat. In fact, I sent the link to a friend of mine to illustrate what I think good blogging is.

So there.

In fact, I enjoy it so much, I just wish there were more, so yes, I will read anything you post :-)
