The short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” is a MAJOR influence on me (duh!). I like to bookend* things (duh!). So I figured why not kill 2 birds with 1 one stone and bookend TYW?! Also, I mention some other cool major influences: McKay, Mayer, Mormonism, and Montana to name just a few. All in 30 seconds. Check it out!
Pretty nifty, huh?
*bookending is a literary/verbal technique in which a writer/speaker ends with the same word, phrase, or idea with which she began. It is often very similar to a thesis.
