I rolled out of bed fifteen kinds of disheveled and half-dressed. Slid on a trucker hat and punched through a tank top. I got about 1000 words down on the page (I never count, so I mostly know it was more than ten), and hit the road. The streets where pretty settled as I snapped pics of graffiti and the New Orleans Scooter Rally.

Fat Angie by E.E. Charlton-Trujillo
"So many issues to deal with in this book, it’s like a can of vegetable soup. Angie is the only one who believes that her sister is alive and not a captured war victim so this starts to lead her into a self-destructing lifestyle. Struggling to fit..." Read more of this review »

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Karen Hey e.E,

I just watched your two films on Doorpost. Incredible, you are so talented! Vanessa Rising had me from the first second, I'd love to see that made into a full feature film. And Living Under Linda's Desk both cracked me up and saddened me. I cast my vote...good luck with both of them.
