If you’re having any difficulty figuring out the scope of your project or what potential difficulties you may entail in the near future (i’m assuming you, like me, are just really getting started producing actual content for the project), I’d highly recommend completing the Author Self Interview. Ray’s guiding questions help uncover some of the underlying motivations of why you’re interested in the particular topic/subject of the project and subsequently help reveal what kind of potential issues may be looming. Doesn’t hurt that its worth 30 points either!
For those of you who are producing more scientific or strictly structured work, this may help serve as a jumping off point for explaining reasons and justifications for your analysis and the form you are writing it (for those people who are producing “reports” and want to have a more colloquial introduction into your analysis).
Good luck nerds.
