Here are all of our writing goals for the coming week. If you haven’t added your goals to the wrap-up post from last week, add yours to the comments here! Godspeed with work this week, check back for articles about working and writing. I may also write a little bit each day about my experience at DHSI, so check back for that as well!
Melanie: Do newspaper research on some groups on which she’ll be doing archival work in Chicago, and start putting together a timeline from research notes. (Anybody know of a good timeline tool?)
Brenna: Finish complete drafts of encyclopedia article and book review and do some archival research to fill in holes in chapter two. (Congrats on getting the draft done!)
Dan: Eight pomodoros Monday and Tuesday, and four a day Wednesday through Saturday while at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute in British Columbia.
Sarah: Four days of research at NARA II in DC. (Ever tried using pomodoros in the archive?)
Megan: Open-code and write summary digests for three interviews, while taking online qualitative analysis seminar. (Good luck with presenting the diss; I like Focus Time as an iPhone pomodoro app.)
Matt: Finish organizing research from a recent trip to the archive.
Carly: Get organized, transcribe interviews, plan trip to Washington, assess progress from last semester and update committee.
Ale: Figure out a topic for her article by Sunday. (Anyone have good tips on brainstorming?)
