|We've all been here...|
It wasn't until I spoke with Adam and Kimberlee that I made the decision to stick with my original thesis about how environment (setting) leads to a search for identity that ultimately ends in a loss of innocence. I feel like this thesis has a clear connection to Alice, and I think that I could find plenty of support for my ideas.
I did not receive the feedback for which I was hoping from my English major peers in Colorado. I had hoped that they would have been more knowledgable on the subject, but they were not very interested in Hemingway. Nevertheless, I was able to run my theses by them and get some practical feedback regarding organization and strength of argument.
After reading a from a few of my classmates' posts about venues for publication, I became interested in how I could publish my paper. I think that it is a helpful tool to have publication in mind because 1) it gives me a realistic goal, and 2) it provides me with the motivation to produce my best work.
On Jose's post I saw a few venues that looked promising for publication. The BYU Scholars Archive and Book Riot piqued my interest and I plan to look into those with greater depth. Kimberlee's post mentioned the International Journal of English Language and Translation Studies. I think that this would also be a good idea to try. Finally, Kristen suggestion to submit to Criterion is a great idea. The criteria for publication meets that of our assignment perfectly. I'm glad I was able to read the ideas from my classmates in order to get a better grip on the publication process.
