While I diligently (and sometimes not so diligently) plug away at my murder-mystery novel, I also want to keep publishing magazine articles. I say publishing, perhaps I should clarify that statement to read: writing and submitting magazine articles. I don’t want to get ahead of myself.
I found great publishers in Blue Water Sailing and Cruising World but I need to expand my audience. Quite simply, I’m not doing any blue water sailing and I’m not cruising anymore. I have lots of stories I can write about sailing but at this point it is more like reminiscing than providing useful information to readers. Sigh. Tear. I’m afraid that putting up and down the Delaware River on m/v Stinkpot will only give me about 300 words.
“The water is brown. I saw a white trout (aka used condom). The Ben Franklin Bridge is magnificent. Wow, look, another smokestack! Here comes a container ship. Isn’t the skyline pretty? Do you think those guys have a permanent camp set up on that abandoned pier? Wonder what they’ll do with the old prison site…”
It’s time to change gears, change magazines, change content. Any ideas?
- Navigating the streets of Philly via bicycle.
- Local, fresh food markets in the city.
- Developing the Delaware waterfront.
