Today my thesis makes me feel like this: ‘aaaaargh!’

My arguments are usually over within about five minutes of them starting, so trying to keep a clear argument across a thesis is proving tricky. I’ve always been a peace-keeper, perhaps that is why I am more used to being devils advocate than asserting my point of view.

Keeping focussed, and precise, narrowing the topic and staying on message. I have now stapled a post-it mantra to my desktop: ‘TELL THE STORY!’ it shouts at me. This seems common advice across disciplines in the write up phase of the research. I’ve had some small ‘wins’ in the last few days but also plenty of frustrations. But I’m going to keep plugging away at it, I feel I’m inching closer all the time…!
