I'm doing the last set of revisions before sending the first draft of my dissertation to Dr. Advisor..
It's scary. It's going quickly -- which means that it's time for him to read it. I'm not seeing where it's weak, and he's really good at pointing those things out :).
I'm quite happy that a recent book came in the mail -- and that the author (who just won a huge, nationally competitive grant -- like, the kind that makes the news) agrees with me about a particular issue -- thus, both insuring that it IS an issue, and that someone really smart thinks so to... It's also good that I have a distinct take on the issue -- YEA Me... I hope :).
So, I'm on the last chapter. As I've been revising, I've been throwing the old versions away. There's one more chapter to do -- and, the changes are already written on it, I just need to correct the file...
It feels great every time I throw a chapter away.
I hope it feels great (and not just scary) when I print it tomorrow and mail it on Tuesday.
Wish me luck!
