In reflection I feel like these blogs have definitely done me some good. Before I began writing them I found it difficult to talk about texts briefly and succinctly, however now I find it much easier. I was also glad at a chance to improve my creative writing as it is an area I feel I should practice in, but rarely do. This unit overall has broadened my writing skills, and allowed me to understand text I otherwise may have discarded. The texts we have studied have benefited me in both writing style and simple understanding of the world around me. I thoroughly enjoyed learning the contexts behind the texts we studied and furthermore being able to better understand the thoughts and feeling of Indigenous people, and Australian writers in general. It has been a journey through history to get to this point, and I am humbled and honoured to have taken it with my fellow students and with Michael and Jess.
