Your cover page and table of contents can be however you want them to be. Feel free to have fun with the fonts, colors, pictures, etc. I will bring markers tomorrow if you want to color.
Your vignettes should be typed in Times New Roman, Size 12 font, black only.
Your titles of each vignette should be Times New Roman, Size 12 font, black only, no bolding underlining or italicizing.
DO MORE OF THESE!
Try adding more sensory details - what can we see, hear, taste, touch, smell?
Add more figurative language - similes, metaphors, personification, hyperbole.... etc.
Try repeating words for emphasis.
Create sentences of varying lengths and structures.
Nothing introductory – just BE IN THE MOMENT.
No conclusion – end with a line that will resonate.
GET RID OF THESE:
Clichés (overused phrases, images, ideas) – if you’ve heard it before, we’ve heard it before
Narratives, transitions, explanations – THIS IS NOT AN ESSAY. Show, don’t tell!
Don’t forget TITLES!
Each vignette should have an original, interesting title; the collection should also have a title.
Collection title can be one of the vignette titles OR something else.
Capitalize according to rules for capitalizing titles!
Don’t make the title a different size than the text. No underline, bold, italics, quotes (unless a quoted phrase), word art, or otherwise weird formatting.
