Work in progress

I've assigned myself a journal-related side project that carries all the hallmarks of a good goal -- it's specific, difficult and time-limited. Over the last several weeks, I've been reading research papers and textbooks, gathering facts and figures, and making detailed outlines. It's slowly moving forward and, one day soon, I'm confident it will come together nicely and I'll be able to share it with the world.

Right now, however, it's a bit of a jumbled mess -- in my mind's eye and in my notes. I think this doodle from yesterday pretty much sums it up -- a little bit of everything, none of it quite complete, one thing right on top of the next.

Ever feel like that?

  1. I often feel like that! I tend to have many different projects on the go at the same time and have trouble keeping track of what I'm doing. And then, within each project, I tend to have lots of jumbled ideas and thoughts. But keep going - you will find clarity eventually :)

    1. Hi Jen! I will definitely keep going, jumble and all -- inching toward clarity. I wish you well with your projects, too! Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

  2. Christie,
    I have been away from the internet for a while taking a break but just had to catch up on what you have been doing. Fascinating! I can't wait to see what comes out of this project. Also, wanted to say that it is so great to see your confidence coming thru. I have been reading your blog since 2010 and back then you would have been so cautious and uncertain about your work. You continue to inspire me. Thanks, Beth

    1. Hi Beth! It's wonderful to hear from you. Thank you so much for stopping by. Your comment means a lot; I loved reading it. Confidence is a huge issue for me and it's fun to think that the subject would come up on a post entitled "Work in progress." It's really nice to know that you see some progress. I appreciate it very much. :)
