Abstract/Description:
The thesis proposed for my M.F.A in creative writing is a collection of vignette-length short stories with each story intended to be a self-standing narrative. Each short story in this collection will be dissimilar in narrative structure and contain characters of various age, gender, ethnicity, and geographies which do not intermix with the other stories. However, language style, mood, and tone will subtly overlap to provide glue, suggesting a kaleidoscopic whole. Thematically, the stories deal with a pattern of threshold moments: coming to terms with disillusionment, substance addiction, death, moral ambiguity, and futility.
