It's been a while since I've posted, and that's because it's been a while since I've done much work. I took a mini week-long vacation when a friend came to town. So far, I've done 5 interviews, and I have 2 more set up. I'm trying to find some more, as I'd like to get up to 10, but as it is I'm doing pretty well!
I've finished two transcriptions completely, and have started two more. It's interesting to go back and listen after the fact, see what little things I missed, somethings I wish I could follow up on, and start to see the trends among the interviews. As I've finished each one, I've sent follow up emails to the women, asking for clarification, etc. And I really am starting to see interesting trends that I want to follow up on in general for the thesis.
My next interviews aren't for a week, so as I work on the transcriptions, I'm also going to be checking out some of the books I brought with me, both those relevant to the topic and ones about the research and writing process in general. It's a bummer not to have interviews set up, but this is all work that needs to be done, so I'm going to do it!
