Not to mention Captain Jack Sparrow is just plain hot.
I also just like the word 'yar.' It looks strange and is fun to say and has a great meaning.
The definition of yar in the nautical sense is a ship that is easily maneuverable, answers swiftly to the helm. If your ship is yar, she responds swiftly to your touch, and goes easily here you steer her.
Perhaps one of the key ingredients to making our own writing careers "yar" is momentum.
I know that when its been a while since I've written or pitched or queried or done my social media, it takes a lot more effort to get back into it. But when I've made writing and submitting and marketing a habit--part of my daily schedule--then things go much more efficiently and easily. I feel I have more control. My writing life is more "yar".
I'm still getting back in the habit on some of those things, but I've been mostly doing better with the daily writing, which obviously the most important. Keep going, keep working to get in those good habits, and then when you wake up in the morning and ask yourself, am I ready to kick some writing butt today? you can look in the mirror and grin mischeviously and say, "Aye!"
p.s. So, I know I've put up some of my video poetry videos lately, but I just uploaded a new one and wanted to show it to you guys too! I had fun, its definitely a different style and tone than I've done before :) It's called Sometimes You Wish You Could Fly.
