They are giving such great ideas on how to write a good paper. I think that my writing is going to be good because I have a lot of good methods that I’ve always used like brainstorming and clustering and I think that those methods on top of the ones I’ve learned from the videos and classmates is going to give me the capability of writing a perfect paper that is in sequence order with the subject and each paragraph will stick to the topic and not jump to a different subject.
