Nature Futures

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

Earlier this year, the journal Nature created a writing competition asking for short science fiction stories of only 200 characters. Today Nature announced the winners and I am one of the five runners up.

It’s an honor to be published in one of the most prominent scientific journals. I can only hope that in the future I will be published not only for my writing, but also for my research. Nature also publishes Scientific American magazine. Here is my winning entry:

Cynthia was learning faster than anyone had predicted. The apparently totipotent cells continued to proliferate at an exponential rate. Today would be the last time they would refer to her as a mouse.

Congratulations to the other winning entrants. Keep writing!
