The integrity of the work

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.
