Avast, Scurvy Dogs:

‘Tis been a busy week it has…. keel-hauling publishers and the like. If ye’ve noticed, the blog’s been quiet as a ship graveyard. The crew’s been ‘ard at work and not very conversational. Perhaps a wee bit o’ rum will loosen tongues and liven up the place. Or a weekend in the brig reading submissions. We hope to be makin’ port soon, and see if Agent Manners will be willin’ to grace us with her presence, so pray for fair weather and keep an eye out for Navy ships.

    Yes I’m a writer, but I’m also a sports fan, and I’m getting mixed signals. First my Dodgers knocked of the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this week, but now it’s Pirate day in the query wars, and my NC State Wolfpack is playing the ECU Pirates tomorrow. I’m a little confused.
    Other than that, I love the part about rum for the crew…as long as I’m on the crew….

    Last year I carved my first portrait pumpkin, er Funkin. The artist who supplied me with the pattern for me favorite pirate carved this one. Mine turned out remarkably well. I use it for a night light now. Nothing like going to sleep with Captain Jack watching over the apartment.
    Yo ho, yo ho, the pirate life for me!
