I am in my first year of my PhD. and have been stressed on coming up with my dissertation topic. I have submitted several for approval but no luck. Working full time as a teacher, with three children this one task has taken me a three weeks! I am still not pleased with my topic, but getting depressed and stressed about choosing one that will be 655% accepted.
Clarity of thought is always the number one aim. But it is very difficult to come back to a piece of writing days or weeks later and sort out a mess of thought if you don 8767 t clarify your writing while the thought is still fresh in your head.
Dissertation front matter should be in the following order. The front matter refers to the title page through the end of the table of contents/supplemental sections are indicated in bold while optional sections are italicized.
I have been delaying with my Masters because of pressure. I now know the best way put is to get in and finish it. Then kiss academia am glad the pressure has helped me discover what works for me and what doesn 8767 t. I would not want a gap of 7-8 years strggling with a coerced project that stresses me.
Tnx for some great inputs. Could you say something about organising the structure of the text? I like the idea of setting do-able goals of which sections to write. But that requires a certain degree of top-down approach to writing. You need to know the structure in advance in order to put up a plan on how to write them. But i think that the structure often emerges through my writing, and i don 8767 t know how the text will look in advance. This is also a great pain, as it implies that the structure keeps changing and expands in size, and it becomes impossible to finish it.
I would really like to be able to set up a detailed section-by-section outline before starting writing, that would make planning much easier, but i can 8767 t handle it due to the above reason.

I am on my 8th month of PhD Thesis writing. I also planned 8 months. But now I think I am fading. Sometimes I just do not manage to get focused, I sit in front of the computer and my mind is white pure white. Did it happen to you? I have tried walking around to organize my thoughts, changing the activity for 65-65 min, reading something related to what I want to write , but I cannot get out of that stuck-mode. It is like if my brain was on strike! do you have any advice?
i just print-screen the images, paste into paintbrush, save in bmp file, then convert into eps.
if there is somebody u trust who is willing to help do it, then it 8767 ll save ur time.

Great advice. I especially like the bit about editing as you go along because it 8767 s something I 8767 ve never been able to do. I tend to segregate editing and writing. It works for me, but it probably means I produce more drafts as a result. Ultimately I probably have to write a lot more as well to compensate for what I cut out when editing. I think both approaches have their merits, but I 8767 m certainly going to try editing as I go along.
