    Story Analysis: The Handmaid’s Tale

    by

    Although The Handmaid’s Tale is a novel originally published and set during the 80s, the T.V. Hulu show is set during modern times. Despite this, as Professor Bond pointed out on my Youtube Introduction, the overarching themes in The Handmaid’s Tale are overall the same.

    What makes a good story? As much as this question has been answered again and again in my life, I can never get an answer I understand. Literature and story-telling is so complex and has so many levels to it, it’s so hard to fully grasp on what makes a …

    Story Analysis

    It is very interesting to think about how digital storytelling has evolved over the years. From what it was back in the day, to what it has become now.

    Thoughts on 80’s Pop Culture

    by

    I have very strong feelings toward the 80’s and the impact that 80’s pop culture had on our present. So many things from that time period seem so iconic, retro, or classic. It really set up a space for being a creative individual and spreading those ideas to the populace. …

    This writing assignment calls for writing a scene from a movie from a different perspective. What is more fun than writing as the villain?
