A writer – any artist or craftsman, really – has a relationship with his work. The work is dependent on that relationship. If the artist foresakes the integrity of that bond, the work suffers. For this reason, never take your criticism out on the work, but on your own efforts to create it. Never think to youself, This statement is inferior, but I can fix it. Instead, think, I can show the truth of this more truly.

The Lady Washington on Seattle’s Lake Union
This is the ship featured in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. The ship travels the West Coast giving educational tours and sailings. The younger crew is training for certification, and fun. I take these cruises for background research for the next book, and fun.

Why is that interesting?
