Fiction and Washing Machines
I got a good laugh, and more, out of Victoria Mixon's recent post 7 Reasons Fiction Needs a Washing Machine. In it, she begins by poking fun at spam and ended up imparting some important truths about writing: metaphorically, writing involves getting very dirty, and just when you think you've gone as deep as you can, you should dig even deeper and find more dirt. Dirt in the sense of grit and truth and utter cosmic honesty. Anyway, do go and have a read - it certainly gave me pause to think.
