I need to be better at using the delete-button. Computers have made it so easy to write and save lots of text, probably too easy. Since there are no limits, I tend to just shuffle things around the documents (I have one document per chapter) making up my dissertation draft.

Throughout the last years, I have been collecting all these small snippets of comments, thoughts and quotes, and I have started to think that now is the time to start using that delete-button rather than just keep moving things around. It is hard, though, as so many things are interesting, but not everything is relevant.
