Happy International Pirate Day!!

Are you ready to sing Shiver Me Timbers & Rattle Me Bones?

Are you ready to be loyal today and break out in pirate speak if your boss says something you don't agree with? "You want me to get the coffee for the meeting??? Walk the plank, you scurvy dog!!"

Are you ready to...

...okay, I made that song title up. And you probably shouldn't tell your boss to walk the plank (though I do recommend using that on children & teenagers). It's not International Pirate Day at all.

I wanted to come up with something informative, but really I can't think of anything because I'm too excited about the awesome WriteOnCon online conference going on now through Thursday.

What are you waiting for? Get over to the Forums, catch an event or eight, and have a blast while learning from some of the most amazing authors and industry professionals out there!

In case you already knew about WriteOnCon (and I'm guessing you did), here are some links so you don't feel cheated by having clicked on my post:
