I’m in New Orleans on a business trip this week. This picture is the view standing in the doorway of the French doors of my hotel room. Win! I wanted to go out there to write, but it’s SO cold.

I still got almost 2000 words in this morning, so I’m right on track to get my project for my other pen name done by or before my deadline. When that’s wrapped up, I’m going on to finish my mystery, which I’ve decided to publish under the new pen name, so I’ll have at least two books for that name. Then, I’m still planning on a Lauralynn book this year. I think all my projects are still on track.

I’m going on a ghost tour tonight after our welcome reception. I did that last year in San Antonio, so NOLA should be even better, given the history of Voodoo and such in this area. I need to bundle up, though. The temps will be in the 40’s by then.

Happy writing to everyone!

I’m a day late checking in. I was in meetings, then on airplanes. And I didn’t write a single word on my trip to New Orleans. I did okay when I was in North Carolina last week, but on this trip, they kept me out too late every night and I couldn’t hold my eyes open long enough to write. I had a little word cushion going, but now I’m behind on word count. But I know I can build that back up soon, so I’m not stressing about it at all.

I didn’t encounter any of the rumored ghosts while staying at Hotel Monteleone, but it was cool learning about the history. And I still think it’s funny that someone at our convention cancelled their reservation because he said he wouldn’t be able to sleep knowing that ghosts may be there.

And one last thing. I had the best seafood meal in, I believe, my entire life while I was there. If any of you ever get to New Orleans, try Deanie’s Seafood Restaurant. Totally awesome!

I’m in New Orleans right now on a business trip for the company I work for. I was talking to one of the guys in our association while we were at our welcome reception. He told all of us at the table that he was going to stay here originally (the convention is here), but when he found out the hotel is supposed to be haunted, he changed his reservation. The rest of us at the table thought it was so cool that it was haunted! Now, I don’t really believe in ghosts, but I love to read and write about them. So maybe this place will inspire me to write something spooky. But I guess I’ll have to go up to the 14th floor….

Can you guess the name of the hotel? Do you know which one it is? It’s the Hotel Monteleone! *shivers*
