Watch those Details

Get Your Moon in the Right Part of the Sky
I never found out the moon didn’t come up in the west until I was a writer and Herschel Brickell, the literary critic, told me after I misplaced it in a story. He said valuable words to me about my new profession: “Always be sure you get your moon in the right part of the sky.”

It's the little errors that stop the reader right in the middle of a sentence. Often the book is closed and not picked up again.
