I have completed a first draft of my essay. The research for my topic has been quite successful as I was able to find scientific journals and articles that helped in formulating my arguments for my essay. I initially only looked at mirror neurones as a biological explanation for empathy, however my research allowed me to analyse other aspects which helped in delivering a higher quality argument. Though, initially I was researching to find information that fit my pre-made arguments, however I found it difficult to write a well thought-out essay by doing so, hence I changed my approach to formulating arguments based on what I learned. I also tried to look at credible sources when researching. After writing my first draft, my supervisor advised that the analysis should contain as much of my own voice as possible, rather than including raw information from my sources. My supervisor also offered solutions for me to improve my introduction and conclusion.
