Today's word count...a starting point

(74.0%) of the Quals Paper

I haven't done much on the quals file since I began preparing for classes a couple of months ago - I did lots of preparation reading for the class that didn't make. Turns out I need to figure out exactly where I am in the section on which I was last working. I think this is a "print out lots of pages and lay it all out" kind of problem, which makes it a daylight problem so it is best left for tomorrow.

As I have written previously my writing style, when working with literature reviews, is gather all the material I want to quote, give each snip-it a keyword, then to rearrange the keywords until the flow makes sense. Then once that "outline" is done I write and paraphrase to knit everything together. Maybe not the best way to work but it is the best I have found for me. So that means that word counts can be a bit deceiving as counts may shift up and down radically during my process. No matter I always look at the counts as a way to keep myself on track.
