Camille Belton---Ellimac Engl1030-41--JL#8 Bard -- Creativity
Last week in class we went over our final projects. In total we have 3 projects. 2 need to be completed in minecraft, and 1 is about minecraft. I chose to start with Raid 5 seeing as it is the one that is due the soonest. In Raid 5 I need to create a sanctuary for my villian (Davy Jones) in miencraft.
At first I figured this would be easy. I simply just needed to make a ship, take a video of it, and give it to someone else. The latter part of the instructions are easy, as for the creation of the ship, there have been problems.
When I first tried to make the ship in class with about 30 mins, the only thing i accomplished was a location for the ship. if it took me 30 mins to find a location, imagine how long it would take me to actually build it. Time-management is not my strongest attribute, but i need to work fast, so other people can watch my video.
While this is my biggest concern, I think I'm missing the big point of the project. This is all about a process which is similar to the writing process. Instead of jumping in and rushing to build a ship that doesn't even look like a ship, I need to follow a process. Poor planning creates a poor product. As with writing, I need to plan out my departments and overall shape of the ship.
Habit of Mind
I should also be creative. Creativity to a habit of mind that uses novel approaches for generating, investigating, and representing ideas. I should not just have the mindset of making a ship. Instead I need to be int he creative mindset of making Davy Jones Ship. The ship should be a reflection of him.
After planning out rooms, looking up way to build ship structure, and build rooms underwater, I feel more confident in the process. I will try my best not to rush, and I'm determined to make it authentic.
