Creative Capstone, science fiction
I chose this creative capstone topic because I wanted to challenge myself, as well as explore a genre that I don't tackle very often in my own writing. The story situates my characters in a fictional future that seems bleak and dangerous. I discovered that this project was not only written solely in pursuit of enhancing my science fiction writing, but it was also written with an attempt to express my own realizations about how we have and still are misusing the resources we have on Earth. This story has more potential than when I first thought of the concept, and that I'd like to use it as my first submission and attempt to send it to a publishing house.
