Thanks a lot for sharing! I'm working on improving my writing skills, and such webinars are beneficial! Writing requires talent and skills. And I think that having skills is more important than talent. The more you write, the better your skills will be I write many short papers because they are part of my educational process, and they are dedicated to different issues, which is great for skills development. The last time I wrote on feminism, it was pretty complicated. I had a few drafts and read examples on because that novel is very important writing about feminism. And those essay examples on The Yellow Wallpaper gave me many writing ideas, which I used in my writing. And you know, the more I read, the more I write, the better my skills are. And I'm happy to have such a chance to become a better writer.
