A – This is the first time I will be trying to plan where each of my illustrations will go, but it is not a difficult task that will require me to research the mechanics of how to do this. I will just simply read my book and place a blank square of where an illustration (which I have drawn already) will be
R – This is required because I need to know how many pages it will be at the end and along with what changes will need to be made. As this task is simply reading and placing a blank square, I will not need that much time do I will make sure I complete it quickly
