This Sunday the Steelers play the Giants. I’m old enough to have lived through all of the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl victories. I’ve felt how this team can bring an entire city together in excitement and pride. The one word that comes to my mind that describes the Steelers is professionalism. It’s this same sort of professionalism, the constant striving to master a craft, that a writer must bring to his or her work. Writing publishable short stories is no accident any more than winning Super Bowls is an accident. If you’re a writer study your craft. You must know not only how things work but why they work. And doing the little things right over and over and over again is important. If you’re a Steelers fan you know what I’m takin’ about. Every aspect of the game has to work together. Every aspect of a story has to work together.
