Hey Blogoshpere! I am taking a creative writing/ fiction class and I need to decide what type of project to do for the semester. Any ideas? It could be a series of short stories, a novella, a play, a screenplay, a graphic novel, etc. What do you think? Topics?
Here is what I am thinking so far: a series of short stories. Maybe 4 or 5, two long 3 shorter. All set in the same universe. With a sci-fi setting, maybe following the history of Earth in 50 or 100 year increments moving into the future. Maybe the settling of Mars, conflicts for resources in the outer planets, conact with evidence of aliens , colonists arriving at the nearest earth-like planet in a few hundred years and adapting to the strange alien life they find there, inter-species warfare, espionage, a political ambassador story gone wrong, maybe throw in some cyberpunk elements with grand space opera and add a dash of hard science.
