I am determined to actually write something today on the dissertation; I’ve spent the balance to time so far determining methodology (which is actually what I will write about today) and reading all manner of supporting literature.
I’m not actually performing the major research aspect of my dissertation till later this month; however, I’m getting a bit edgy not having anything down on paper as yet. Arguably it is difficult to write something concerning the research before gathering the material itself!

Academic writing is problematic for me. I can sit down and write many words without difficulty; but the whole interwoven research/analysis bit is much more demanding. It will come together—positive thoughts—positive thoughts.
