Goals for the Week Ahead (10/8 through 10/12)

Ok, I've not been the most accountable on this blog-- which was, I will remind myself-- the entire purpose of the thing. . . . so today I will post my dissertation writing goals for the week.

  • I will have a very rough draft of the 2nd case study done on Wednesday (typed version, as it's mostly handwritten right now).

  • Then by Friday, I will have made some additional sentence-level editing and revising changes, and I'll have a brand new copy for the weekend.

Now that sounds like a lot of work, but maybe it's not so much. My first case study is almost complete, and I need to fashion the subsequent studies after the first one . . . . so I am-- in a way-- filling in a template of sorts (kind of). Part of the problem I am having with this case study is that the subject of the study is so radically different from the subject of the first study-- and this is a good thing, but it's a difficult thing to separate myself (as a researcher) from that first study and move on. So my third goal:

  • Separate myself from that first case study subject and latch on to the subject of study #2.

How about you all? What are you goals for the next week?
