Coming into the home stretch... [Jul. 22nd, 2005|02:33 pm]


Hi. Remember me?

My thesis is going, very very slowly. I've got about 1000 words written, but I'm really in the last leg of it (less than three weeks to go) and I'm starting to get into it.

My essay-writing approach is vastly different to a lot of people's, and it's pretty much to make notes, read things here and there, talk about my topic at great length to anyone who'll sit still for long enough, and eventually, to actually sit down and let it all flow out. This has been okay, though - I've been looking at the few small drafts and explainations I've made over the months, and it's been interesting to see how much my ideas and structure have evolved. The differences between the first skeleton structure I made and the ones I'm working with now are enormous.

It's interesting, because all those early ones are similar to how I write actual essays, so I'm pleased that my work is improving and becoming more sophisticated. I'm literally tearing my hair out with stress at the moment, and my sanity is a brief and fleeting thing, but I do actually feel relatively pleased with my ideas, which is the main point, isn't it?

Now, I have to crank out 1000 words before the library closes.
