Describe a significant breakthrough in your development as a writer.
My most significant breakthrough in my writing career was losing 5+ years of poetry. The notebooks that contained these works were lost, and I was devastated by the waste. When this happened, I basically wanted to give up on my poetry, but I ended up realizing that this was really the push I needed to keep writing. Now, I am more consistent than ever with expanding my personal portfolio.
