Memes Make Connections
“An idea: a theory or an equation, might sit around unnoticed for decades, centuries, even, before it’s rediscovered and put to some use. That’s how it works: it makes connections with other ideas, other knowledge, gathering momentum all the time, growing exponentially if it’s strong enough. Just like it would connect and grow within the billions of neurons in a single mind.” ― K. Valisumbra,
Richard Dawkins coined the word “meme” in his 1976 bestseller The Selfish Gene.
Memes capture a concept, moment in time, or person that we all know, and because of this familiarity, we’re inclined to share them. So, how do these connections form? What makes them worthy of sharing across continents? Why do we even like memes? Each of us will have our answer, but there’s a group of creative geniuses at some ee cards; they get writers.
But just as some like blue, and others, red; we’re all slightly different in our sense of humor. I may like number 4 or find number 3 too painfully true to be funny. You may be the opposite.
Have some fun today; find yourself, and then try to keep this evolving, changing, and growing by providing your take on “You know you’re a writer when…” in the comments.
Number 11 is one I’m sure we can all relate to – if we’re honest.
So, I’ve opened the dictionary, and found the word, “Choice”. Yes, it’s part of the directions – choose one meme that describes you, but it was the word for your prompt, too.
Would a writer lie?
Please answer the first question about your favorite and why, and be kind on the last question about writers lying. Thanks.
