Abstract

For my honors research project I investigated the techniques of established contemporary writers, took a specific look into their different ways of framing a story through the guise of recollected memory, and used their conventions and mechanisms to develop my own original work. I also studied the elements of noir, speculative, and realistic fiction, as I am primarily interested in those genres. In the process I examined my old workshop material, with revision in mind, and selected the pieces with the most potential for improvement. I then developed and polished these into two short works of fiction that I hope to submit to literary magazines for publication. I also planned out and began to work on my first novella. Through personal essay I reflected back on my writing process and what I learned from my research and examined how I might move forward with my work.
