Talk Like a Pirate -- Talk Like a Writer

Something pirates and writers have in common--each group has their own lingo. If yer a true pirate ye can jabber with yer mates an they all understand what yer on about. Writers too have a vocabulary all their own. If you know it, you're one of the crew.

That's one of the reasons I started this blog. I've got other blogs, a personal blog, a book review blog, but I wanted someplace where I could kick back and talk writer.

A place where people know that there's nothing queer about query letters. A place where if I talk about my WIP, people know I'm not going to crack it at anyone. A place where I can say I write middle-grade fiction and no one thinks that it means my work is mediocrity.

Welcome to the Scribblers Cove.


  1. Ha! Now I want to write a queer query letter. I'm just sayin'...

  2. That uncalled-for pun came from a friend who had read my personal blog and then the next time she saw me in person had asked, "What's a queer-y letter?"


What be on yer mind?
