It's good to have deadlines.
- Plan a realistic time line for the various stages.
- Are there any deadlines that are fixed. For example, it is
useful to have a draft completed prior to presenting the data at scientific meetings. Then
finish the paper off when you get back based on feed back you have received.
- Work backwards from these fixed deadlines.
- Make sure you leave enough time for several revisions. A
dozen or more revisions is not out of the question.
- Make sure you leave time for a few more experiments
and a little more analysis.
