Write Right: Ahoy, Maties!

It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

It’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Why don’t you give Captain Write Right your best pirate impression in the comments? You know you want to do it. If you don’t, the captain of this particular ship might make you walk the plank.


  1. I was going to use the word booty, but thought better of it! (It is just this kind of restraint that holds me back as a writer, matey.) 

    • barrettrossie I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having some restraint. You have to draw the line somewhere, right? Then again, maybe we’re all a little too politically correct at times and need to throw restraint out the window. I understand the conflict regarding “booty,” though. It’s one of those words with multiple meanings.Now, how am I to translate all that into pirate-speak? Avast, ho! (I have no idea.)
