We were given the task to write a a Sci Fi story that would make a logical keep. So this mean that we had to take something in the science communty and push it over the edge but, it still had to make since. For example in my story I used Interstellar Travel. Interstellar Travel is when you are traveling at the speed of light and you go to many planets. We had free range when it came to writing our stories. Working on this project it was a combination of our humanities class and biology.
Caption: This is an image of Kepler 438b which is a planet that is very similar to Earth and I write about it in my Sci Fi Short Story called Once in a lifetime.
The World-building graphic organizer is just what it away to build your world in your story. Lots of writers use smoking of world building outline to help them create out your story. Filling out this organizer helped me really narrow down what I want and what I need to talk about or explain in my story.
Research doc this was a blank document that we had to create so we could have a place to save all of our links. Also it was a place were if we were looking up information for our story we would have place that would be our brain dump.
Thoughts after internship 4 weeks later:
I felt really good about my writing, I like how the story turned out but and there are a lot of thing that I would remember to do next time you write. One being to do a lot of research on what I want to write about. So while I was writing my story I went through a lot a phases on what I wanted to write and I hoped around on different ideas to write my story on. I knew that I wanted to write about space and I wanted to write about something that was happing today. So I know that by research a topic before you read about it and making sure that you have enough info information on what I am writing about so I can be able to write and outstanding piece.
What do you wish you'd done differently?
Something that I wish that I would have done differently is by taking more time writing my story. I know that I kind of rushed when writing my story and I if I had spent more time editing and making my story better and a little bit strong. Also If I had a little more time I could have maybe mad my story 10 - 9 pages instead of 15. So I would have to say that if I took more time trying to write my piece it I think that I would have made it better and stronger in certain sections of the story.
