I'm supposed to write a vignette about how my family traditions and my name affect my identity. I'm completely drawing a blank, though because I'm not sure what a vignette is or how I'm going to write one on this particular topic :P. Although, I'm pretty sure a vignette is a short-story. Anybody want to help me out or give me an example of a vignette, 'cause I'm having trouble finding one on the internet.

VIGNETTE (French, "little vine"): A short composition showing considerable skill, especially such a composition designed with little or no plot or larger narrative structure. Often vignettes are descriptive or evocative in their nature. An example would be the brief narratives appearing in Sandra Cisneros's short-stories. More loosely, vignettes might be descriptive passages within a larger work, such as Virginia Woolf's "Kew Gardens," or Faulkner's descriptions of horses and landscapes in The Hamlet. The term vignette ("little vine") originally comes from a decorative device appearing on a title page or at the beginnings and ends of chapters. Conventionally, nineteenth-century printers depicted small looping vines here loosely reminiscent of the vinework in medieval manuscripts.

You could have at least said something that makes sense because I don't think he's going to be writing a sausage lol
Edit: Unless it's one of those penpal things, you never know what you're gonna get.

Fixed. :D

In wrestling terms, a vignette is:

any piece of video footage featuring characters or events which is shown to the audience for the purposes of entertainment or edification. Usually, they are meant to either introduce a debuting character or to get a wrestler over before their TV wrestling debut. In World Wrestling Entertainment, wrestlers rarely acknowledge that they are being filmed, forcing the viewer to "suspend disbelief" as to why a camera operator would be allowed to witness and record an intimate or secretive situation.

That's the only time I ever hear the word being used.

According to my French/English Pocket Dictionary: a vignette is a manufacturer's label. It's true. :D
