I've nearly finished my thesis! Nearly ... I have about 4000 words to write (I have rough notes / bullet points but I need to turn them into prose) and 3000 words to cut (for a 20,000 word total). But all the thinking is done, I know what my findings and conclusions are, which are the bits I still need to write properly.
I need to do everything by Saturday evening, because I can then email the final "I think this is genuinely finished" version to my supervisor for a quick once-over and to a friend who's offered to proof read; I'm then busy Sun-Mon-Tues and can hopefully sort out any last little wee edits based on their comments on Tuesday evening before printing. And then I can go to Cambridge on Wednesday, get it bound, and hand it in!
Any inspirational words of wisdom?
I think I have pretty well developed study habits and stuff, I know I just need to keep going and keep working at it. Most of it has been written in intense chunks over the last 6 weeks, so I know I can
get the last bit done in these next 3 days if I pile on the pressure and keep working away at it ... but any help in keeping that pressure on and motivation high would be great!
