Abstract

This short story collection explores how elements of nonfiction can be tied into fiction through the incorporation of psychology research. Each of the eight stories incorporates psychology research as a driver of plot and/or character decisions and thought processes, thus adding a scientific element to each piece. In some ways, both psychology research and fiction seek to increase understanding of the human mind, so this project seeks to marry those two pursuits. Additionally, the stories are an attempt to explore various human relationships, so they each take the form of a letter. The “writer” of one letter is the “recipient” of the next (Anne writes to Brady, then Brady writes to Clark, then Clark writes to Dani, etc.), highlighting interconnectedness and playing on how people are all related to one another.
