S1 E7 Fate’s Dirty Laundry
This week KL! and Alli get washed away by a romance for the ages and also grapple with whether or not stardust can get blood stains out of our whites. We discuss the myth of the Washer at the Ford, the lengths we’ll go to to protect those we love, and if fate can tell if you’re committed enough to murdering a guy. Then we answer your questions about how to maintain focus in your writing. (Advice which is not reflected in the meandering content of this podcast episode.)
Digressions include: unreliable narrators, KL!’s dream Batman film, and love (re: hurts, scars, wounds, and marks).
Alli recorded the first half of this episode inside of a tin can, so please excuse the unusual audio quality.
