Mattina Underway – so what happens to my writing?

It’s travel time again. Matt, Farley and I are heading south along the Florida east coast and hoping for a weather window to cross the Gulf Stream and enter the Bahamas. We are traveling with one buddy boat and trying to hook up with 2 or 3 more. It’s fun to arrive in a pack, with your friends already imported with you.

While we are traveling, I have no idea if I’ll have internet access along the way. My next shot at blogging will probably be once we are in the Bahamas. So if I’m quiet on this end, that’s why.

I always think I’m going to have time to write while we are underway, but it never turns out that way. Somehow, when the sailboat is in motion, I can’t concentrate on writing. Writing while sailing is a romantic idea to me. It’s a dream, really. The reality is I get busy.

I need to be in a quiet anchorage in calm weather to produce a good word count.

See you on the flip side.

Thanks for reading . . .

  1. Hope you have smooth sailing. I understand about the good word count. It is so hard for my secretary, (Momma Jean), to type when we are jumping up at her arms and licking her face. She says it is like typing on rough waters. Tell Farley we said Hi. Love M.J.


    1. Farley here. That does sound like typing on rough waters. Maybe you could try and contain your excitement and let MJ write. Although, I never worry about that. When I want attention I make sure my humans know it. Woof Woof.


  2. I’m wishing you and your buddy boats a safe passage to the Bahamas!
    Just remember, even when you’re not in front of your computer screen, I think the writing part of your brain is still busy, sifting through ideas and getting ready for the next opportunity to write.
    Happy writing!
