Todays speaker mentioned that he didn’t know where he was going until he wrote the book . He got to the point through practice. One thing that resonated with me is that he didn’t know how much he didn’t know until he was reading about it.
This is so true. In this project there has been times where I feel I have lost heart and didn’t know where it was going. I was always clear on what my question of research was but I just didn’t know how to place it. We are at the point now where I have so much information and the hard part is going through it and ensuring that the conclusion or the presentation of the whole project is clear.
I feeling I’m getting lost a lot of the time in the academic writing of it all even though I’m told to write being myself. I keep getting told that you should keep going and see it to the end and to be honest that’s what I do anyway. The whole project I feel I have know what the answer is from the start. Doing all the concerts has really open my eyes not only what you should do for a palliative care concert but what you should do for a original band concert.
One part of the process I have enjoyed is the stripping ideas apart and rebuilding them. I have always been a advocate of keeping things simple and getting on with it but I have learned that you can analysis something, strip it back and then rebuild it keeping it, or even making it more simpler. The plus of this is people are smart they just know when the work has been done and I hope that show in my final project.
