I chose my Burning House as one of my wild cards because it shows something about me. The original assignment was to take a picture of ten or more things we would grab if our house was burning down, and write a list saying what the items are. I wanted this piece to accomplish showing who I am, I wanted someone to be able to look at the items and feel like they know something about me. The thing I like most about this piece is that I could incorporate my favorite and most prized possessions in one picture/list. I think this shows that as a writer I know myself and can easily express that. If I could revise this again I would most definetly put my parents in it; when doing this I kind of thought they could fend for themselves.
