27/05 Thesis Progress: Extension Time

One sentence: thank GOD for extensions.

I hate the concept of extensions, but for once in my life, I have legitimate reasons for an extension, and I applied for one, and I got it. This evening. Thank GOD.

I’m actually almost done from the writing. Which is miraculous. But I’ve been churning out actual good stuff for the past couple of weeks, and I’m halfway through the final chapter (almost). Since this thesis is so LONG, the writing has become almost second nature. I’ve been doing this for thousands and thousands of words, so a few more thousand just spill out of me with relative ease. I usually don’t write more than a thousand or two thousand words a day, but in a few thousand I’ll be at the minimum word count, and eventually at the end of my final chapter!

It’s all a bit overwhelming at the moment, but most things are overwhelming when it comes to this thesis. I’m really pleased with a lot of the chunks that I’ve written up till now though, so that’s something. I hope that when I’ve finished with the first proper whole complete DRAFT that I can go back and fine-tune it all as much as possible.

We’re going to be on this journey for a while longer, folks.
