Default Sci-Fi Short Story for 9th Grade English Class

Hey all, my English teacher has assigned us all short stories to write about anything in the genre of Science Fiction. The minimum is 5 pages, whilst the maximum is 20. I know everyone in the class is gonna go the route of zombies, aliens, etc. My best idea (and favorite) so far, is about a couple dozen volcanoes erupt on the same day, causing the atmosphere to cover in ash blocking all sunlight. All the ash in the sky will make it harder to breath, therefore, all populations (besides sea life) will eventually perish. Over time, the Earth will freeze. I think I am going to have a main character who keeps a diary/journal of the days that pass, from day 1 to x amount of days I decide upon when all of humanity becomes extinct.


Does this seem like a decent idea? Please feel free to explain. Thanks everyone

Seems like a pretty cool idea to me.

Thank you. Does this interest you any?

What I mean by that question is, would you read through if you had the chance?

It does interest me. My dad was in the air force and helped in recovery after the eruption of Mount St. Helens; I find his stories really interesting.

I would definitely read through it, if I had the chance.
