Dissertation Update: 171 pages

Today’s status:

  • 21,241 words

Today I incorporated another study, and at one point the page count nearly hit 200. However, I realized that my (long) figure captions were severely bloating the list of figures, so I cut them out and did some other editing. That eliminated between twenty and thirty (!) pages. There remains now only one more study to be incorporated, although I still have to do the writing for that study. I also have to write bits and pieces throughout the dissertation and do some massive editing, but it’s nice to feel like I’m picking up some positive momentum on this thing. It’s also much easier to cut and rearrange than it is to generate text, so that part should be easier.

    And I bet at least 5,000 of those words are multi-syllabic terms that look weird on paper.

    Good luck with all of that!

    Just get ‘r done. Dissertations, despite their continuing loss of value over the years, are probably still overrated. The work is important, papers are important, the dissertation, not so much.
