Abstract or Summary
  • The Other Side of Marin investigates how the lack of communication between family members can lead to potentially devastating consequences. The novella, set in the 1970s in Northern California, is told from the points of view of Lucy, a middle-aged mother of four, and her teenage son, who for his own reasons has slipped into a state of delinquency. My purpose for writing this novella was to write a story of realistic fiction with scenes and dialogue that seemed as natural and unforced as possible while still engaging the reader, and to challenge myself to translate raw human emotions like grief, anger, and despair as clearly as possible onto the page without directly stating them as such. Creating tension at many points throughout the plot and between several characters was also at the forefront of my creative decisions. Key Words: Creative, Writing, Fiction, English, Novella
