So, I think I have settled on a series of fictional speculations about the afterlife as the topic of my project 2. In my earlier post I mentioned that this idea came from a book I read. That book is titled Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives, written by David Eagleman. This book has forty different versions of the afterlife, each very different from the others. I came across this book in my English 223 class.
To start my research off, I have decided to read the book over again. I’ll be looking for ways I can be different from the stories in the book, but also how I can stay within the same realm of thought. I may deviate from David Eagleman and write longer stories that are more fleshed out, however, being concise and letting the reader envision as much as possible is important to me as well. I think reading the book again will help get me into the mindset I need to start writing my own stories.
