14 Day Challenge #14: Research Report

14 Day Challenge #14: Research Report

[I’m participating in the 14 Day Mini Research Like a Pro Challenge. Thanks to Diana and Nicole at Family Locket for sharing their expertise and guiding us through the experience.]

I did it. I finished the fourteen-day challenge and I’m a better researcher for it. Every time I do a project like this, I finding myself wanting to do another one because I feel like the next time I can do it better in less time. That’s called “progress.”

One of the best parts of the challenge was the push to write up the research report because that’s a skill I really, really want to improve.

If you’re curious, you can take a look at the work-in-progress.

And what are the takeaways from the experience?

  1. The research log is key to being able to write efficiently. I’m motivated to put more effort into that step in future projects.
  2. It would have been better if I had written as I had research. Next time.
  3. There’s no way to do a good job editing without building in a few days to let the draft copy sit.
