just breath …

I am currently fighting a strong compulsion to begin writing the second assignment for ETL 501 even though I haven’t finished the readings, nor collected the data from other sources. It is as though I cannot hold any more information – even though I am making notes as I go and writing down the ideas I have which go beyond the material. It is as though I will forget everything …

I have experienced this feeling on a number of occasions in the past and it has lead to me writing too early and out of an anxiety space.

So far, I have overcome the compulsion to start – I am breathing through the anxiety space and am remembering Kuhlthau’s research into this phenomenon – it has helped.
