Ok. This is photoshop. It was done in the 1940s to stimulate the Alaska sea food market.  (“There are a lot of great steaks on this Copper River Red!  Look for them in the seafood section of your local grocery store!”) I like this photo because it reminds me a writer can make anything believable. Unfortunately that’s the problem with a lot of writing. It’s not genuine; its escapism. The best writers don’t ‘make things up.’ They capture real life in a unique manner. Mark Twain made a common chore like whitewashing a fence humorous, memorable and worth retelling. Poe’s raven was, well, just a bird and Hemmingway’s old man was just as old man telling a fish story. Shakespeare made dying for love immortal. Jack London took the reader inside the mind of a dog. Truth is stranger than fiction and we will never ‘run out of great’ good ideas from the real world.
