  1. Chuting: the primary challenge is how-to convert your enthusiasm for myth into research. It doesn’t matter what your subject is, the core lesson of university writing is that it relies on credibility, support of other thinkers. It is not simply opinions. It must cite, quote, reference and explore logical ideas.

    As an exercise: insert a credible university research reference for every sentence in the doc you submitted. Use google scholar. In this way you will convert your thought into statements of fact that are supported by other thinkers. Currently your page (I appreciate its enthusiasm) reads too much like your opinion.

    Think of every sentence as a question.
    Example: “are metamorphosises more prevalent in chinese myth?”
    — use that as a search phrase in google: put in 2 or 3 of the references with quotations that you find there…
