In my current WIP, my main character has a part-time job at an auto parts store. While googling for a list of metal auto parts that I could talk about, I came across this amazing piece of metal art.
It strikes me that this what I am trying to do as a writer. I want to take the pedestrian, the everyday, the bin of scrap auto parts, and transform them into something out-of-the-ordinary. Maybe even out of this world!
