Week Three

I have worked harder and longer on my research in the last three weeks than in the last year put together.  The results are clear and I managed to send a re-written chapter two weeks ago, as well as a whole new one (that I started in September) yesterday.  This covers 90% of my literature review.  I have not seen my supervisors yet but I am meeting them this week which is great news and perfect timing.  I just need to maintain the momentum and to start on my methodology this week.  Very exciting time.

If you’re reading this because you’re a PhD student, I recommend wasting a little more of your time on phdcomics.  It’s always good when we realise we’re not alone…

Chapter One

From everything I read and everyone I speak with, this is the chapter that is written last. My supervisor agrees but has asked for it to be the first thing I do in order to set the scene for my research. I agree and it was in my plan for delivery sometime now. It will be a draft – and a weak one at that – but the idea is to ensure I’m starting off on the right foot. I’m meeting my supervisors on Monday and am writing this post instead of writing my chapter which I need to send by tomorrow (or Sunday at the latest). Oh and I’m also watching Wimbledon (Murray vs Tsonga) and am running the British10k in London Sunday morning. Madness!

Update: Miracles are possible… First British man since Fred Perry (1938) has made it to the Wimbledon final.
