This is a perfect title for your story. I was caught up in it just as you had hoped, I'm sure. Good job!
You nailed the theme with this one! And I love the washing machine metaphor! Well done!
Great title--and the story surely did not disappoint in any way. Loved the message that God can use all our struggles and pain for good. Thumbs up to you.
I really liked this story, and would like to read more...both before and after this snippet. Nice job with the topic.
I love this. Thanks for the lovely treatment of the the topic.
Really enjoyed this. Absolutely great! Hope it does well. Colin
Oh - what a powerful image, and powerful telling. Exceptional.
This one's a winner in my book! You throw a great hook with the opening sentence, then you nail your audience with the "successful novel" theme and the MC's immensely believable dialogue with the Almighty.

I also savored the similes and symbolisms, such as, "Bitter, cynical eyes looked like bruises in pale flesh", and the MC pushing away the expresso and ordering "hot chocolate with cream & sugar."

Right on topic, without a single wasted word--exquisite and powerful writing. (Did I mention this one's a winner??)
