The research is coming along really well since during the course of the first module, I drew up a rough draft of my brief and spent most of the break in-between gathering up scholarly journals and relevant books on my theme.
Over the course of exploration, interests broadened like opening Pandora’s Box. In an effort to keep myself organized, keeping a proper Harvard Style bibliography in alphabetical order is an easy way to keep track of my notes and thought progressions and allows for me to easily reference posts, annotations, and provides a structured system for cross-referencing during the course of my studies, research and development processes. This also allows me to double-check that the referencing system is properly developed and that the reference list is critical, academic and closely related to my theme, keeping the research tight and focused. (It is also very easy to come back in and add to this list as I progress through my research.)
