Regrouping...This week I sent off my final Hump Packet of my Goddard career (hopefully...as long as my Creative Thesis is accepted by my faculty advisor and by my second reader).
Inside Packet #3:
Two annotations—my final ones—numbers 44 & 45
My 19-page Process Paper
A customary Process Letter
And 12 pages of my Creative Thesis revision
Now I am writing and rewriting as I polish and hone my graduate screenplay. It’s still Wyn’s story, albeit more finely tuned, with a tightly-wound ticking clock, a polar bear out of water element, and a greedy oil company bent on land grabbing whatever they want—taking both land and precious water ways from the Inuit of Nunavut, Canada.
It’s meant to echo what’s happening in the Circumpolar Regions currently, while highlighting what one person could possibly do, if she rises to the challenge (she does!).
Global warming has opened waterways and eroded precious shoreline, leaving the Inuit and native species to adapt or perish. But a prophecy tells of one who will save her people. And while stubbornness may be her strength, it also may get in her way….
NIKI SWEET TALK MOVES. Coming soon.
Okay. I’m off to bed for now. So I can rise early and return to Wyn’s story.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
