I am going to blame my limited productivity today on the woman sitting next to me at Starbucks who wouldn’t stop blowing bubbles with her gum. I know, I could have just put my headphones on but I didn’t so, two hour later I am still on page 3

ok, getting down to it. Still feeling like I need to read many more things but this is my go-to method of procrastinating on . Tomorrow I print all the outline, quotations, etc., and make the map, and then Thursday is go-time.

Bad writing precedes good writing. This is an infallible rule, so don’t waste time trying to avoid bad writing. (That just slows down the process.) Anything committed to paper can be changed. The idea is to start, and then go from there.

I feel like I am seeing my dissertation data from a whole new vantage point after 6 years with it. It took time, experience, and lots of reading for me to finally feel some sense of theoretical clarity.
