Week 8 Growth Mindset

I try to bring in the growth mindset when I can but most the time its stuck on the back burner. Especially when I am distracted by my hectic schedule. One key point I have mastered in this class as well as in my other classes is that I never think that I am "not good" at something but rather sucking is the first step at getting good at something and I just need to spend a little more time on it. In most the things I do, I do use internal motivation when I am excited about something but when I feel like it is not necessary I need outside sources of motivation.

Week 8 Reflections

My favorite story I have written so far is The Voyages of Sinclair, I already had the idea of doing it and just needed to know what stories of Sinbad that I wanted to include in my remake. I am still experimenting on how to do my reading notes but what works for me best is to write down any possible ideas and things I want to research and most of the time I can remember what I wrote and do not need to look at them again. (BUT I forget everything I don't write done so they are helpful in that respect.)

I am really excited about my storybook. I am afraid on how I am going to get my thoughts and expectations of it to my audience though. having constant comment on it does help though.

My favorite types of stories are the gender reversal stories or the ones where the females end up being the heroines.
