Object Writing Exercise - Pirate

Objectwriting.com is a site that provides a word for the day everyday. The idea is to wake up, look up the word, set your timer for 10 mins and just write. It's a great way to start the day.Write about the object or subject using your sense based faculties; Taste, Touch, Sight, Sound, Smell as well as your kinesthetic senses- movement and body sensations.

A splash of salt on his lips wrenched him from his daze. Raise the Roger, chase them down, don't leave anyone to tell the tale.

One more ship, one more cargo and maybe the farm could be his.
