  1. Finn,
    I can tell from your response that you understand what’s going on and would have some interesting things to say. I think now is the time for you to push yourself to create pieces of writing that you are even more proud of each week. It won’t be hard for you to achieve this. All you need to do is turn your dot point style writing into flowing paragraphs. I suggest you take a look at a few other writers to get an idea. The work Lilly and Hamish did this week show a wonderful example of what you would be able to create.
    Looking forward to seeing the fruits of your efforts,
    Ant
    Hamish or Lilly’s
