Is this partly fuelled by our Tuesday night conversation? if so, I'm glad you, Dan and I had that particular chat. There's a lot more discussion to be had on the subject, but for a brief, insightful thought on fiction, you've fairly well articulated one of the more important struggles!
Also, I meant to say, I'm part of a meme on books and writing at the moment...if you want to join in, head to http://lauriesteed.com/thegumwall for an example of the meme, create your own and tag me in my comments when you're done. Hope you're having a great day, Ant. See you soon!
No, Laurie. Fun discussion though but I had this tucked away for around a month. Thanks for the comment. I'll pop over and take a look at the meme too. Sounds interesting.
