By now you will have discovered that research is quite an orderly and systematic process. Decisions over the topic, the research questions, and the literature all follow quite logically one to the other. You first need to identify your topic. You then clarify your research questions by reading the literature, and when these are firmed up and you have developed your conceptual framework, you are in a strong position to write your literature review. Things tend to proceed more or less logically. The same is true of the decisions you make about how you will gather and analyze your data. There is logic to those decisions.
