Asking for substantial revision on Chapter 3, my committee has given me some helpful feedback on improving my content structure for each word study chapter (3-7). I’m working through that revision now on Chapter 3 and will be applying the same criteria as I revise Chapter 4 before submitting it. The additional work required by this improved writing plan is challenging and time-consuming. Fortunately, I’ve also edited my overall chapter plan and will only be writing 7 content chapters, not 8 as I’d previously anticipated.
My revised schedule is to complete and submit those two revisions by mid-October, then write the remaining 3 chapters in October, November, and December. Again, the up-to-date dissertation schedule is always available here.
