Bernice? A Flapper? Pleaseee

I am doing my research paper on how Bernice, the main character of Bernice Bobs Her hair turned into a Flapper.

To be quite honest I wasnt even aware of what of a flapper was until I did some research on Fitzgeralds short story. By doing this research I found out that the short story Bernice Bobs her hair actually came from a collection of short stories entitled "Flappers and Philosophy". The title of this book is what inspired me to do the topic of my paper.

After long and drawn research I found out what a flapper was and after identifying what it was and its pattern of behavior I found it very easy to apply to the behavior of Bernice. However I didnt find it quite as easy to information that would be considered valid enough for my paper. But somehow I made it work.

I have to say, that I was quite proud of the finishing product of my paper. When it came down to it I found that I was writing about something that I actually found interest in and it didnt feel as much like forced writing as it actually was.
