In this article, the author wants to work against simplified and mechanical notions of qualitative research simultaneously illustrating that researchers have a choice. The author aims to create an overlapping and plural text that is dynamic, presenting possibilities for surprise and more intensive experiences with research and texts. More specifically, the author disrupts the traditional ordered narrative in a conceptualizing and critiquing of methodological simplicity through the use of voids, intervals (reflections, disclosures, images), and examples from other researchers. The author proposes that methodological multiplicity and complexity can move researchers toward conceptual, analytical, and interpretive spaces that can meet the needs of ever-changing communities of practice.
