us to other people and to the universe? Be it strings we cannot see or stars that we each look
at throughout time, connections are one of the main things that drive human interactions and
help us navigate the world.
o Create your own work of fiction with a clear plot or sequence of events that focuses
on the invisible or visible connections that exist in the world. The story should be no
more than 500 words in length. You may organize the story into however many
paragraphs you would like, but please make sure not to go over 500 words. The
