"Ship At Night" ACEO by firstname.lastname@example.org - Nov. 2010
One of my earliest memories is of the nightmare that haunted my childhood. In the dream I would be out in the middle of the ocean on a very dark night. There would be the towering black bow of an overwhelmingly huge ship bearing down on me, white waves frothing around the hull. I would wake up screaming and my mother would come in to comfort me.
That's the first paragraph of the book I'm writing. I'm calling it Anchored in the Past for a couple of reasons. 1) We lived on a sailboat and we anchored the boat in many different bays and harbors. 2) I've never quite gotten past the nightmare I describe, and the effect it's had on my life.
I have newsletters from the 14 years we lived on Tropic Moon, slides from our travels, and lots of art that relates to that time. I want to happily merge it all into a book, and use it to inspire other art as I go along with the writing and editing.
Would you like to sail along with me? Be pleased to have you aboard!
