A vignette can be compared to a Journal entry or an entry into one's diary.

What is a Vignette?A vignette is a short, well written, descriptive snap shot of a single incident in your life. When writing a vignette, it is important that you remember to include sensory details to help make your snap shot more interesting. What are Sensory Details?They are details that portray your senses. Touch - Sight - Smell - Taste - Sound

Famous Author, Sandra Cisneros, tells her readers that she decided to write her novel, The House on Mango Street, because "you will always be Mango Street. You can't erase what you know. nYou can't forget who you are." The purpose of this project is to create your own book which will help you remember what you know, as well as show others who you are.
