Story by Deb Olin Unferth
We were tasked with creating a poster inspired by a short story that was given to us. I was given Likable. To me, the story seemed to be told in the third person, but was from the perspective of the narrator, as if she was so self-conscious that she couldn't tell the story herself. On top of that, the interspersed questions throughout the story felt as though it was a kind of trail of thought that the narrator led the readers down.
I took the idea of the trail of thought and ran with it. Sometimes, when I have a persistent thought, it keeps popping up and sticking like something I can't get rid of, which is the inspiration for this project.
