What is reflection? That was the first question that popped into my head the first time we had to write a cover letter for the Fighting the Monster paper. The art of reflecting on ones thoughts or their means of writing is rather difficult. As I took on the first reflection, I struggled on trying to make it coherent and not just about how I viewed the project. I wanted to go deeper into why and how I felt when I wrote it.
