Weekly reflection: Details, details, details

I feel I have not achieved much since the last post. Working still on the data anaylsis and write-up of my last two studies, I struggle to motivate myself. The overall structure and story of the chapter now stands and what remains is to fill in the details, write out the discussion which so far only exists in key points and pull it all together.

I find that hard to achieve because it is an iterative process of going through the text I have written again and again, finding the flaws, finding what is not yet clear, expressing the thoughts that are only half formed in my head at this stage.

After quickly making progress when writing the outline of the text this to-and-fro seems discouraging and draining. I think I will forward the text as it is soon and turn to other things such as the planning of the studies with which I want to address the question that starts to appeat ever clearer in my head. I have planned to start writing an ethics application to force myself to go into the details of what I want to do, whom I want to inclove and what I think the results of the workshops will be.

Turning to other tasks and going back to the text with feedback and new ideas will help me to overcome this lack of motivation and see the text progressing.
