I enjoyed the midterm because it gave me a chance to innovate for the first time in my life. I loved the idea of being an advocate for creativity because it is something that I care deeply about.
If I have learned anything from the midterm project it is that, to always starts early! Always start ahead of time, whether it’s just jotting down a few notes here and there. But to always have something in mind before you begin. Another thing is, I’d like to learn how to conduct proper research. Searching on google scholars is not enough, so I’d liked to know how to search better.
Of course I will change as a writer, I have already over the past few months— I can only go up from here. Definitely research, try to uses different sources because I’d like a stronger bibliography. I expect more greatness to come with these changes.
