    Where Does Your Inspiration Come From?

    Inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere. It's a matter of keeping eyes, ears and mind open for directions to take, plus some inner drive that says "You gotta write." It's also keeping in touch with your past. Which is why I wrote a novelette, which I recently put up on Kindle. And I'm looking for feedback from readers of this forum. You see, I'm white and what I wrote about was the white view and experience back when I was growing up in the 1940's and '50's. The focus is a black maid who lived with us. That was long before anyone thought of the term "African American." Which is why I call my novelette "The Negro in the Basement." A lot of guilt and innocence is attached to my recollections and feelings, but I need to know the reaction of the AA community. You can get it for only 99 cents on Kindle. I've attached a link. If you decide you want to read it, please let me know how it affects you, positive or negative, and did I come close to any sort of relevant truth. Thanks. http://www.amazon.com/The-Negro-Basement-ebook/dp/B00AMC71RQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357327525&sr=8-1&keywords=negro+in+the+basement
