Pick projects that you will be excited to work on.
There’s really no reason to not feel passionate about your work in this class. You’re free to pursue basically whatever you’d like.
Spend more time reflecting than you normally would before diving into a project.
There aren’t strict guidelines to guide you through the creation process, so take time to see your project from its beginning to end before getting started.
Enjoy your classmates.
There might be some social awkwardness at the beginning of the semester, as this class involves a lot more personal interaction than sitting in a lecture hall does. Don’t fret! Sharing your writing is a great way to open up to the people around you.
