Demystifying the Dissertation
Peg Boyle Single wants to (briefly) discuss more issues raised by having too much material.
Among your first steps, writes Peg Boyle Single, are knowing your audience and dividing your material into key points.
Peg Boyle Single suggests ways to turn all of those articles, books and PDFs into chapters.
I’m writing this column because: (1) I used to stare at a blank screen, and (2) I’d like to save you a modicum of misery while you are writing your dissertation. Truth be told, I don’t want to save you a modicum of misery. Rather, if you struggle with writing, I hope that you will learn to love writing (yes, this is possible!). If you already enjoy writing, I want you to increase your enjoyment and fluency.
