Cutting Through the Dissertation Fog

I am trying to tie down my Dissertation Research Question in detail and that is still proving to be somewhat of a challenge. I imagine that it is the absolute cliché of the MA student that one finds more and more interesting avenues of investigation the more more reading and researching one conducts. My  initial research this last week has shown me that.

I now have a very clear sense of why a defined and locked-down trinity of Question, Aims and Objectives can serve as a necessary merciless filter for keeping laser-focus on the end-goals of my Dissertation.
