Learning my craft

From a blog discussion about self-published books and the fact so many of them show poor technical writing skills – poor grammar and spelling, or just poor technique generally – and whether this matters or all that counts is telling the story:

“Craft is the cut, the polish and the setting that makes the jewel.”

I love that. It’s a perfect description of why I keep trying and trying to improve as a writer.
