You know, I just remembered a series of very old Doonesburies in which a Revolutionary-War-Era Zonker is trying to learn silversmithing from (IIRC) Paul Revere. And Zonker is turning out these incredibly horrible pewter tankards, and keeps insisting that if he was only allowed to work in silver, he wouldn't have this problem, that his work needs real metal to shine.

This was me, with regard to writing, four years ago.

These days, I know it's the craftsman's fault when I bitch something up.

I guess that's progress.
