Meme stories

Stories are a kind of mutation engine. There are evolving story memes and they change in the night, when you aren’t looking or when you tell your child a fairy story you were told when you were little. This morning I was telling my son about Theseus and the Minotaur. I’m sure I got half the facts wrong but maybe, in a story that can be an evolution thing. . Stories can fill us with joy or frighten the bejeesus out of me. There is a place for great stories, things that entertain and do not feel the need to educate or inform. If they do that by accident then that’s okay. I just don’t want an author to push their soap box theory down my throat. I’m hoping that my stories don’t, if you read one and find it does, please let me know.
