Goal Exploring your topic finding and forming a focus for your research

Feelings: You're probably still feeling uncertain, even though you have a topic. As you root around in your topic, you may have your darkest hour in the whole process, feeling threatened by the choice of a focus--what if you pick the "wrong" one? Try to tolerate these feelings. Once you choose a focus, you should start to feel some optimism and confidence. You may even have an "Aha!" experience, but don't worry if you don't--there's not an "Aha!" in every A+ paper.

Thoughts and Actions: Follow the steps below to get an idea of things you should be thinking about and doing, and some of the strategies which will help. Note the type of information search you should be doing at this stage.
