Where is the Craft?

Something for me to work on this year: taking charge of my craft. / Craft is a funny word. I always laugh when actors use it, although I know they take their “craft” seriously. If you’re “crafty,” that’s not considered a compliment. And when it comes to “arts and crafts,” well, craft might be synonymous with “crap,” depending on your …
