I literally wrote this alongside my student this time, which was kind of fun because it kept me on my toes. I actually only had ready to show when class began one day, and so they read just those first two paragraphs, we discussed what a vignette was again, and I then asked my big question: "I want to establish a metaphor in here and then extend on it like they did in 'If Cornered, Scream.' Would you talk with a small group and come up with some ideas for a metaphor I might create in my story?" I already had my ribcage/heart metaphor in mind, and none of them came up with the same one I had thought of, but they did give some interesting suggestions even though they were only seeing the first two paragraphs.
