I haven’t updated this for a while, but here’s the recent progress. Chapter 5 was approved, bringing my approved progress past two-thirds. Chapter 6 is with my committee now;
if when they approve it, I’ll have almost 80% approved.
I’m almost halfway done with Chapter 7. I plan to complete that this week. Next week I’ll write my concluding chapter and compile/format my bibliography. All three pieces are due together next Wednesday. It’s a little unreal to see the first-draft deadline so close (some days I thought it’d never come; other days I wished it would back away), but it’s also pretty exciting.
Just one more week of writing days left and the biggest hurdle will be behind me.
