Since I am taking a creative writing class this semester. I am assigned to write a short stories. For the note, I am very bad at writing short stories because I always have complicated ideas that I want to convey. Mind you, 5000 words are not enough to weave them all. 

However, currently I am learning to limit my ideas from running wild in a green pasture. So,I am building fences around my ideas. 

As results, yesterday I drafted the plot based on : Introduction, Rising action, climax, falling action and resolution using a flashcard method. I put on top on the small paper each section then let my thoughts running wild until it stops when reaching to rising action. It goes on until I found the resolution. 

So basically, the story I am writing has a drama and cyber-thriller genre. It is an upcoming age story about female tech prodigy who found hundred and how she deals with the environment around her. Since this will be presented inside the class, I am also going to highlight several issues as in: sexism, personal security, and one of epidemics in 21th century, loneliness. 

Since it meant to be a short story, I am leaving the readers to guess about the ending. I don't mind that it's not perfect. I am just trying to write and eventually finish something.
