About This Newsletter

Since I have no choice about how and where I do my research, I have to follow certain steps.

Letter from the editor

Step 1: The idea came from a news headline about an asteroid that will strike Earth in 2046. The article aroused my curiosity because, in 2046, I will be 100 years old.

Step 2: How do I find an authentic website? In this case, it was fairly easy because of two items mentioned in the article. Item 1: The Torino Impact Hazard Scale. Item 2: The NASA mission referred to is Double Asteroid Redirection Test (Dart). There were other links mentioned in the article, which I will check out after I have investigated Item 1 and Item 2.

Step 3: Read the chosen articles and take notes in longhand. After taking the notes in longhand, transpose them to either a book or an bitem document. It is this step that can give me problems, because sometimes I have difficulty reading my own handwriting. This normally occurs when I am in a hurry to write a thought down.

Step 4: Reread at least once, the chosen article before going on to the next one. After taking notes on each article, I reread the articles again.

Step 5: Answer the questions: Who? When? What? How? Why? These questions will help me figure out the premise, characters, and plot.

If any of my readers have any suggestions on this subject, please let me know. Have I listed all the necessary steps?
