Dinner theater

Mason Mason asks the obvious. "Why don't we write online? Aren't journals just dead blogs?"

Russell has prepped three days for this question. He defends private writing against writing for any stranger with a search engine. "I want you to think and feel, not sell. Your writing should be an intimate meal, not dinner theater."

— from Generosity, by Richard Powers.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

Took me a while to get here but, that's fabulous. I was such a fan already, but if I hadn't been I would be now.
