"Of Storms, Seas and Pirates" is based on the earlier years of eventual pirate Anne Bonny's life and set in a sort of fantasy/folk magic rich early colonial America. I've had a love of the Anne Bonny story for about a year or so now (been curious about all things female-pirate-related for close to two decades, thanks to the novel "Grania"). Getting to write my interpretation of her early years (because I believe heroes and villains aren't born, they're made--yes, yes, I'm a nurture, not just nature sort of gal) is a great deal of fun!
Granted, there aren't gazillions of readers anxiously perusing my progressing story--TextNovel.com is still quite young, but there are some folks taking a peek. And yes, I did finally break and contact TextNovel.com members with the TextNovel.com networking option so they'd think about taking a look. BUT. If there's one thing I'm coming to realize more and more in life it's the unfortunate fact that often it's not what you know, but whom. So, I'm networking. Ugh. I'm not sure I'm socially motivated enough to really make the system work for me. But I'll try nearly everything once. Nearly everything (I have my standards, you know ;-).
So, once again I'll suggest that any of you dragging yourselves past my little blog should stop over at TextNovel.com. Make an account. Start your story. Maybe win $1,000 and a publishing contract. But if you don't win the prize, at least check out the site. It's a great idea and there are good people making it work so the rest of us can play.
Anyhow--go to TextNovel.com. Vote for me! ;-)
Oh yeah...Take care and Keep Writing! :-)
