I’m writing, and it’s frustrating.

The worst is when sources are just irrelevant, and add nothing.

The best is when they are relevant, and add a lot of useful information, but, of course, I have to jump back and forth through the text to add this information in the appropriate sections.

The most frustrating is when they are fragments of relevant stuff, and I’ll need other sources to complete this, but have to jump about anyway.

The thing is this is … annoying … with a good word processor, but would be practically impossible without.

I remember doing a literature review as a grad student back in about 1978. I had dozens of photocopied references spread out on a conference table at the lab, writing the draft in long hand. Word processors made it so much easier, but I was still using paper journal articles till around 2000. You had to have a good short term memory to keep it all straight, so I’m glad I retired.
