As I sit here right now, I for the life of me cannot write anything into my research proposal. It just sits there on the screen staring back, laughing, and taunting at me. Now I know this is my first attempt at writing such a thing, but I really had no idea it would be this difficult. I two biggest problems I have are organization and balance. What I mean by balance is: how can I best give details, but not give too many details. I an easily skirt over the finer points, but then I would have a very short proposal indeed. If I go into more depth I can't seem to find the line of where to stop. There is no clear demarcation, or at least I can't see it. Blech. Oh well, I am now taking the info-dump approach, where I just spill out everything that comes to mind. Hopefully I can just sort through it later and find the gem of an idea here and there that I can work with. To add to my depression I bet this entry has more words than I've been able to add all day.
