Re: Author in research mode needs help
Your name is interesting. In fact that is my exact name so you can't be all bad. I've lived aboard my sailboat for close to 20 years and now while I still have the boat I'm no longer on the sea, but in the mountains of NC. There are many stories here on the various forums for you to draw from. Some made up and passed off as real and others make no sense at all. "A Voyage for Madmen" is a good read as someone else mentioned as is Slocum's book. I've always wished that I could write about people that I've met along the way with their hopes and inspirations, but somehow I think you're either born with the talent or not. Jack London had that talent and is one of my favorites. Best of Luck.
