Well, that’s not what I was expecting at all. I really, really wasn’t anticipating hearing that I’d done a good job on the lit review. I put lots of effort and thinking into it, however input doesn’t = output. As such, I entered this afternoon’s meeting with Sian prepared to take on board lots of constructive criticism and ready to record lots of suggestions for necessary improvements. I was fair knocked back by her positive response, to the extent that I sat blankly – stunned – before trying to capture some of her comments. This is what I managed to capture:
“I’ve cracked it quickly. Offers some good context. Covers relevant stuff. Sian is really encouraged – I write well. It’s going really well. Things are organized and happening.”
A great writing style, but evidently poor powers of self-appraisal. Meanwhile, here are some of the gaps.
Other agreed points:
Lots to do, but lots of positives to take from the meeting.
