Uncle Josh discovers a Meme
I realized yesterday that I had the perfect ending for a short play I’m writing.
By “coincidence” it is the same suggestion I made to a writer in a critique group this week.
Clearly, I’m dealing with a meme.
In this case, the meme is two characters who cannot touch, do touch just once at the climax of the story to try to drive the emotion or reality of the piece.
I’m sure it will come up again, and if I dig far enough, I’ll find it in my older trunk stories, too.
