What did Mark Twain learned about writing while sailing on riverboats? I went to sea for 16 years to find out. Off watch we gathered on the hatch cover and listened to the best story tellers spin long well told yarns. After a while I joined the rotation and told stories too. At first they were passable, but with much practice I began to be able to hold a listeners attention for longer stretches of time. Having an audience starved for entertainment and unable to escape the confines of the ship helped. Surprisingly sea-stories, at sea, are rarely about seafaring. They are more often about home, where ever that might be.

My specialty is taking a complex engineering subject and translating it into conversational English.
