Approximate Time to Complete (does not to be included in the paper, just as a reference) · I did an assignment on Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes. This assignment took me about 2 hours to complete, but I will say it took me this long because I went down a wormhole of multiple interviews. My assignment had 5 paragraphs: 1 introduction, 1 paragraph body on brief biographical information, 1 paragraph on an interview synopsis, 1 paragraph on why I picked Howard, and 1 conclusion paragraph on my thoughts. Expect at least 2-4 hours to complete, depending how many interviews you want to research.
