What Have I Been Up To? Dissertation Writing…Sort of…

I hope to post regularly this semester, but I hope to finish my dissertation completely this semester as well. Between the two choices, I may have to set aside this blog a bit while I analyze, write, research, and revise (repeat).

Here are some comics to make you smile on a Monday. I think these apply to any writing task, not just the dissertation or thesis.

I very much relate to this one below, especially the coffee part.

This is me, below. I hate to admit that, but it is.

And, this gem below is me, too. (Insert a friend or roommate, though, not a boyfriend or spouse.)

Last but not least, The Thesis Committee, below. I’ve posted this one before, but it is so wonderful I want to post it again.

How do you procrastinate when you write? I mean any writing…a blog, a paper, a news article, a letter to someone, or, a thesis or dissertation.

I think I am past the “dread” stage, and I hope I am past the worst of the procrastination stage. I want to finish and start the next phase of life. This has been a wonderful journey, but it is time to move on.

And now, I’ll stop writing this blog post as a form of productive procrastination, and get back to the dissertation writing.

Have a great day!
