The picture that is displayed is a photo of my parents after their marriage. I’m going to be incorporating wedding/happy photos of all my families to the presentation. Most likely it will be towards the end so then it will be a good closeup with happy faces. The beginning of my presentation is going to display the front cover of the book. After that I’m going to explain a brief summary of the families I chosen and why. I’m not entirely sure if I’m going to explain the whole life story of each family how they meet because of time. The majority of my presentation will be what I have found in common of each family. The presentation still has a lot of holes that I can fill up so for right now I’m going to be outlining every picture that will be displayed in the presentation. I’ll have it done by next week.
This week has been somewhat productive. I was able to obtain my book back yesterday from my parents friends and got a lot of feedback. Making little choices such as grammar and rewording. The picture for the post is from an old front cover I had originally in mind. The problem with this cover is that it’s too simple. Not enough color, my really front cover as I will show next blog post is much more colorful. The next blog post I will try to showing pictures of my product. The final due date for this 20% is comin close. I think it’s time for me to start finding a way to present my information. I have in mind is what I decided I’m a past blog post, which is present each chapter is a 15 second intervals. Spring break is this week so I most likely won’t do anything this week.
I couldn’t keep my promise to my post from last week. I said I was going to take a picture of my book I created but I had work yesterday. I was suppose to have a picture ready to input to this blog post but didn’t. Next week I will for sure have something to show. The progress I made was actually from my parents this week. They told me if I can show my book to one of their friends. I’m not entirely sure why my parents friends knew I was making a book. Currently they have it right now and they said they will give me feedback. What is in my mind is how I will present this product. I’m thinking that each two slides will be a chapter or similar to that. Alot f progress was not made this week but hopefully there will be next time.
This week hasn’t been the most productive in my 20% time project. I think the thought of almost finishing up this year long project has began to make me feel lazy. Some ideas to help me get out of this stage have been ideas I had from last weeks post. One of the ideas that I had was to get an item from one of my families. This week I was able to possibly attain an item that means value to my families. I’m not entirely sure if i can use it but I’ll know by next week. The reason for the title of this post is that next week I’m going to show the front cover of my book. I have been talking about my progress but haven’t showed anything yet. I will try to find more motivation so I can finish this project to make it the best outcome possible.
I have completely finished all my chapters that I need to write in my book. I have a statistic chapter and then each of my three families each have their own chapter and the last chapter is how it all comes together. I still haven’t put the fourth chapter inside the book because I want one of my families to read my last chapter. I don’t know what I should do since I have about a month, so I will be thinking of an ideas that I can add to the final product. I may add some more or I could just officially show my finished product to some people not related to the project. I could also ask my families if they have any items I could possibly use for my presentation. All I know is that I’m mostly finished with my 20% project and it could be any better.
Chapter 3 for my book has been completed and it is also more concise. I promised to myself that I will make my chapters shorter and it happened. I have been given some feedback already from my families. Most of the responses enjoyed when they read the book. However. the people who didn’t enjoyed it as much lucky gave me some opinion on what I could do. One of opinions said that instead of focusing to much on the process of how each couple came together I should explain the real purpose of explaining the story. I’m going to revise a little more to my previous chapters having that in my mind. Everything for my 20% project is going well and I haven’t to many roadblocks. Next week my goal is to have chapter 4 done and maybe since its a longer break from school ask for more feedback from people involved with the project.
I have completed my second chapter and am close to finishing my third chapter as well. I felt that I need to get a mindset into finishing my 20% project. I feel like I’m in a good position to have someone to view what I have so far. I want to hear some input before I completely finish my Chapters. If I kept making my chapters and they don’t get the whole idea why I’m typing it then why am I doing the book in the first place. Most likely I will have one of my families that I interviewed to give me an opinion. I haven’t had any difficult problems occurring when I’m typing my chapters. The only thing I can think of is its difficult going back and forth to my notes. Next week I will try to make sure I can get some feedback and then complete to chapter three. I’m starting to see my 20% project come together.
