Describe (in a short paragraph) a significant breakthrough in your development as a writer.
I just published a review article in which I was the sole author. It was a breakthrough because it signified that I could work independently at every stage of the writing process. The writing took several months, but once the paper was published, my confidence in my abilities as a writer significantly increased.
