Today is day 2 of Banned Books Week. I urge you to go online and read the lists of banned books (too numerous to list here).  And I am not talking about pornographic books. And read a banned book. But my books haven’t been banned yet (I don’t think).

The SCBWI Midsouth just finished its yearly conference in Franklin, Tennessee, near Nashville.  I  attended the three-day event. Agents, editors, and guest speakers  joined 202 children’s writers and illustrators. I had great time and met lots of wonderful writers, agents, and editors. I plan to go next year.

Who lives in a pirate ship over the sea?

The old seadog

Who is peg legged and drunk as can be?

Avast Mateys,

Arrgh, I have been scouring the Seven Seas in search of scalawags who ignored Talk Like a Pirate Day in 2012. Now it be 2013. Must I tell ye again what shall surely must happen if ye fail to heed me advice? I have a full crew and mark my words, we shall ferret out ye what fails to talk like a pirate. And me boys always deal cruelly with landlubbers.

Arrgh, I have already received reports of people foolish enough to ignore Talk Like a Pirate Day. Me thinks they like walking gang planks and feeding fish. Well, me boys takes a shine to feeding landlubbers to sharks.

While we’re close to land, I’ll have me lads fire a broadside at the shore. The ship is reeling in a circle. Another sea storm or too much grog? We’re about to dash on the rocks. Where is my crutch? And why did Polly fly off just when I needed her? One of you scalawags, hand me a cutlass!

Never you mind me wee problems. Talk Like a Pirate or there will be the devil for ye to pay. A cursed navy frigate just showed up. Grapeshot in the cannons! Boys, hoist the Jolly Roger up high and make the cowards quake! Then we shall finish Talk Like a Pirate Day.

 

And so be done with it!
