As part of the degree requirement for an MFA in Creative writing I am submitting an unpublished, original collection of short stories and a novel excerpt as my thesis. These stories are meant to encapsulate the feelings of need and confusion, the desire for understanding and acceptance, and ultimately the finality and the sometimes futility of life. These stories are meant to infuse the reader with feelings of both joy and despair, but never with passive acceptance. The title story, Lake Affect, is best described as an excerpt from a novel in progress. This portion of the novel should stand alone and exemplify the desired emotion affect upon the reader of this collection.
