Casting Pearls (Based on Nobody Knows from Winesburg, Ohio)

Step 1: Selecting Your Text- I've decided to adapt "Nobody Knows" from Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio. While the focus of the text is George Willard, I've chosen to explore Louise Trunnion, a lonely farm girl who spends her days with her father, who is hard of hearing. She wants to be heard, but she seeks this attention in unhealthy ways, essentially casting her pearls before swine.
