Sandra Watson Capstone
For my capstone project, I explored multiple genres of creative writing. For the first part of the year, I wrote a small play where I collaborated with the students of Science Leadership Academy to come up with a performance even though we didn't get to the performance, the students of Science Leadership Academy helped me better understand playwriting and the work that goes into it. It also helped me build a small community within SLA that helped me better understand the genre of playwriting. In the middle of the year, I researched monologues where I wrote several monologues as a response to a tv show 13 reasons why. The end of the year I created a poetry book called Hope this helps which also is my final product. I went through numerous genres of creative writing and it was a hard long and stressful process because when it comes learning about different creative styles, you need to know that it will require a lot of your time. Even though exploring different creative writing styles was a little difficult and time-consuming. I learned a lot about myself and the genres. I learned that playwriting isn't just writing its visualizing, and monologues aren't just stories their personalities and poetry isn't just symbolism, it's a story.

The only limitation of this source is that it didn't give great examples.
