Belts and Walls

My grandfathers. A carpenter and a beltmaker. I never really watched them work, but I think about the craft of making a belt or putting up a wall.

You need to do it well.
You need to get it done.
You don't second guess yourself.
You seek excellence, but accept imperfections.
You don't worry about being judged.
You don't worry about your impact.
You just focus on getting the job done and done well.

This is how I try to apporach writing. And in the spirt of the craftsperson, I will leave it at that, allowing others to draw their own conclusions.
