(This question is mandatory)

Where are you at in your program?

(This question is mandatory)

Think back to the last time you had a great research and/or writing day.  (Define "great" however you like.)  Tell us the story of that day, from concrete details to how you felt throughout.  What about that day made it so good?  Shoot for 5-7 sentences.

(This question is mandatory)

Now, think back to the last time you had a terrible research and/or writing day.  (Define "terrible" however you like.)  Tell us the story of that day, again with concrete details as well as your emotional experience.  What about that day made it so bad?  Aim for 5-7 sentences here too.

(This question is mandatory)

What would it take to have more of the great days?  This could be reality-based ("better time management") or wish-based ("more hours in the day") or both.  Give us 3 or 4 ideas.

(This question is mandatory)

If you haven't mentioned it above, tell us about the last time you were "stuck" in your work.  Describe the roadblock.  How did you feel when you weren't making progress?  What got things moving again?  You guessed it: aim for 5-7 sentences.
