"This summer I experienced a grad student rite of passage: crafting a review of literature. The way was fraught and I had to overcome everything from an avalanche of articles (let’s just say my snowball method raged out of control) to a complete inability to conceive of any kind of organization. I also developed fascinating new ways to procrastinate. Thankfully, I follow #phdchat on Twitter, and the participants’ sage words on the process helped me move from a state of near paralysis to fruitful, concentrated writing sessions. These writing sessions eventually led to a Lit Review that I really, really enjoyed writing."
