Life is a Journey
Date of Completion
Open Access Capstone
Master of Arts (MA)
My converging areas of interest are the mind, critical thinking, and creative writing, which I synthesized as a sequential examination of the layers of the cognitive process of my creative writing. For my synthesis, I was interested in the creativity that results in good writing and I wanted to reflect on my own creativity, the styles and sources of it, and the cognitive processes that support it. The synthesis has three sections: the first section serves as an introduction to my ideas about creativity and the process of writing. The middle section is a collection of my stories, which I grouped together under the title “Heaven and Earth.” The third section is my after-thought, which reflects on the creativity and the process I used to write the stories. These seven short stories express my personal outlook on life and death, heaven and earth.
