Cats in my writing
They always seem to be there. In my play AN UNDIVIDED HEART, there's a Zen puzzle about a cat. In my play SEVEN AFFIDAVITS ON AUTHORITY, there's a character named Cat. And in JIHADI: A LOVE STORY, well, they're all over the place.
I think it's probably because they're the ones most likely to answer in the affirmative when I ask them whether I should keep writing.
