As ever when writing extended papers such as these, my planned structure has evolved - nearly out of all recognition. Come to think of it, I think ‘blown out of the water’ might be a more suitable phrase.
But it’s actually all quite positive. I’ve successfully wrestled the myriad of disjointed fragments that my dissertation synopsis consisted off into one (vaguely) harmonious whole. For the most part, I’m very happy that I did choose this topic, despite my somewhat wobbly start. I feel I know where I’m going with it, have got a rough but logical chapter outline and feel I’ve given myself good scope for whacking plenty of critical analysis in there. Yes, the dissertation seems to be firmly on track, people.
Let’s hope I’m still saying that in a few weeks time.
