I will log what I plan to do before each session working on the thesis. Also reflecting on the previous session and its log to compare what occurred against what I planned. To gain clarity and to discover where my planning works and where it falls short.
Sessions are categorised into research and create blocks. Mainly so I don’t use researching (reading or watching informational youtube) to procrastinate on writing.
Research: Skim read sample literature reviews. Focus on section breakdowns and look for the questions that each section is implicitly trying to answer.
Create: Create a structure for the literature review. Noting the section/subsection headings that it needs. Identify critical questions for each subsection. Include clarifying questions.
