A “midden” (MID’n) is a heap of dung or refuse.

Example (as used by Steenie Harvey today): “When writing a travel story, a sales letter, or a report, there’s nothing wrong with voiding your literary bowels and creating a wordsmith’s midden at least not initially. But every writer needs to revise and rewrite.”
