Writing things for school

Loosely based on my recent experiences with writing a research proposal as a requirement for my program:

1. Discuss idea with mentors.

2. Write things.

3. Send writing to mentors.

4. Get feedback.

5. Write again.

6. Feel stupid.

7. Delete things.

8. Weep.

9. Delete more things.

10. Have breakthrough! Feel smug.

11. Write furiously.

12. Send to mentors.

13. Receive confusing feedback.

14. Lie on the floor.

15. Write more things. Repeat 1-14.
