The most important is to remember that your motivational letter should mark you as a successful candidate different than the average students. It is extremely important that the letter is written after reading the study programme and subjects covered and University’s specificity, like sport teams or campus facilities. Be free to “land” the semi-final version of the letter to your colleagues, friends and teachers. Their remarks will be very useful. Do not be mad if everyone changes something, with that checking your letter will be better and its mission will be accomplished.
However, also during April, I was determined to finally post a chapter to a fanfic I hadn’t updated since last June. I contacted my script co-writer from my freshmen try at Script Frenzy – who is also a big fan of my fanfic – and I asked if she wouldn’t mind beta-reading for me. The chapter was broken down in to about a dozen mini-scenes and we set forth for me to send her a new scene at least once every three days (which ended up being faster turn-arounds now that I had the thrill of feedback nearly daily), and the “(Firm) Deadline” of wanting the chapter posted by “Tax Day” so I at least had the 2nd half of April to work on my script.
