I DON’T WANT REALISM. I WANT MAGIC! I WANT NEW ORLEANS!

It’s a beautiful and sunny day in New Orleans. As I explore the city, I find myself gravitating to the sound of different instruments filling the air.
As I approach the music, I notice people painting, drawing, crafting, and writing. The energy in the atmosphere becomes even more spirited and inspirational. It dawned on me these artists are amongst the area where some of the greatest literary writers lived.
The writer’s block is where William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, Mark Twain, and George Washington Cable (just to name a few) had given birth to some of the most famous works that would be significant in New Orleans’ history and define American literature.
