Holy Cow! Serena totally kicked butt tonight over in Queens, NY. The U.S. Open Tennis is an experience. Ray and I rode the rails to Queens in 2001 and enjoyed a day of tennis. The crowds, the energy, the sheer geometry of shots. If you've never played tennis or seen it live, then I don't think I can explain the absolute genius involved in winning this tournament. The crowds are incredibly amazing.
What does this have to do with writing? Craftmanship. Training. Hard Work. Determination.
That sums it up.
Bam! Tune in to ESPN2 and watch athletes at work. Amazing craft.
