In The Beginning There Were So Many Parts

It's very intense to be at the beginning of such a large project, trying to figure out which bit to do when, since everything has yet to be done. It's like there are all these objects trying to fit through a pipe and right now they are all trying to cram into the opening at the same time.

I know that in a few weeks I will have gotten a handle on what I'm doing and will create a rhythm for how each piece fits and what to do when, but right now it is very overwhelming and I feel like I'm in suspended animation as all the pieces crowd in on me.

I am formulating my committee, structuring the questions for my study, reading books for background theory, editing the website, connecting with interviewees, gathering information about technologies for writing and recording, finding childcare for the kids, and formulating ideas for my proposal, all at the same time. It's invigorating and terrifying.
