After heavily revising Chapter 3, I’ve resubmitted it. The chapter grew by 50%, which helps my bottom line tremendously. I’m now 49% done by page count (48% by word count). Now to enjoy my weekend, then start revising Chapter 4 by the same standards on Monday…
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).

For those looking for more information about my dissertation than the updates I’m posting here, I’ve just launched a new dissertation website . As I finish each chapter, I’m posting the outline and content summary there.
This chapter will be flying in a holding pattern until I submit it after I get chapter 3 back in the next week or so. Until then, chapter 5, here I come.

Chapter 2 was a veritable beast to write. I’m glad to be finished with it. It’s been sent off to my volunteer readers and I’ll be editing and submitting it on Friday. Assuming that it is approved by my committee, that will bring my total page count to 68 . I’ve also posted revisions to my deadline calendar . Originally, I left the summer entirely open, hoping to work ahead, catch up,… [Read More]
