I have a problem with using Snowfall as an example for the writing. The web design is incredible and I’m excited about creating something like it.However the writing is a Journalistic article based on actual events with facts as well as a report done in a creative native story. I understand how we are meant to deconstruct SnowFall for this project. Major environmental event, how it affects character's, history of actual location and time period book takes place, importante characters in the novel and how they are apart of or affected by the big question we are asking. However I don't feel Snowfall as a literary piece is the best example for what we are trying to do. I have a feeling that I am going to make this up as a go whiles staying relatively within the structure provird. Melissa probably won't like it and will be worried that I’m not following the assignment correctly. But I have decided that the institutions are intentionally vague to allow creative freedom.
We had some struggles when looking for quotes. We wanted to be sure that they were spread out through the book. In the beginning we found the answers to our big question that yes society does put too much pressure on arbitrary goals like success we found many quotes to support this. but at we got closer to the end of the book it became more of a what happens when a society puts too much pressure on arbitrary goals like success. So we looked instead on the effects the answer to our question had on the characters of the book.
