In this writing training, he advised us to often read journals or scientific papers from other people or other reference sources. This will help us find ideas for making an innovation or new ideas. By reading often we can also find out the weaknesses or weaknesses of each journal. To find these ideas beforehand, we must first focus on one area so that our minds are not divided, then we then look for references from other sources, and also be more critical and care about the surrounding environment. To be able to publish our journals does not have to be expensive, but our journal ideas must be new or have their own uniqueness, and we must be able to determine which journals we will go to, if we already know then we see the pattern of the journals we are aiming for so that our journals can also be good dna is famous.
