This is the short story I wrote on my first ocean liner type cruise. (Had taken a Windjammer cruise years and years before). I started the story in the car on the way down to Galveston, writing by hand in a really neat green tablet I bought at Target just for the trip. Writing in a car is hard. Had a difficult time reading my handwriting afterwards.
Continued the story sitting in the bow of the ship as we sailed into the Caribbean. Then hung out in the ship’s library at various odd hours writing, mostly with the room all to myself. Everyone else came in to get sodoku cards. Wrote in the stateroom (we had a balcony). Wrote at the bar, I think.
I’d like to think someone noticed me all that time. “Hey, there’s that writer again!” I don’t think anyone paid attention.
SAINTS & SINNERS is a quirky little story where the two main characters throw people overboard. For a reason. It’s one of my favorites.
