So I had this idea for a short story and it goes a little something like this: I am in a fiction writing workshop and we were recently given an assignment to write a story about someone who doesn't have one of the five senses (i.e. hearing, seeing, etc). I was thinking about doing a story about "touch" where a soldier loses an arm and has to deal with the consquences of that. I was thinking if it just happened that the whole "phantom limb" effect could come into play but then a friend of mine pointed out that technically he can still "touch" just without an arm. I'm not asking if you think I should write this or not, just asking if you think the story is plausible for the assignment. I have a back-up but I don't want to do what everyone else might do in class.
