For the annual project work for this year, I aim to complete a series of short stories and present it in the form of a book. I would be working on a string of 6 fictional stories and need your approval for it.

Details of the project:

  • I would be working on 6 fictional stories which I have worked on already and come up with the basic themes and stories.
  • For the first story, I shall be working on the friendship of two pets, the second story will feature the relationship between two long distance lovers, the third story will be on social networking romance, the fourth one will be related to college staff room politics, the fourth one will be an adaptation of Othello and finally, the 5th one will be about a blind man living in Africa.
  • I am enclosing a draft of each of the stories so that you can go through it and let me know about changes required in the ideas.

Estimated time of completion: 2 months

Hope that you will approve the idea
