    Finished the first draft of the lit review today. Wrote approx 1800 words. Sent it off for proof reading.

    I started to work on the introduction. I have an outline ready. I'll be writing throughout the weekend!

    Leaf dances in breeze.
    Catches the remaining light.
    Downpour incoming.

    Days cannot stay still.
    Heavens crack asunder and
    wash the filth away.

    How bad of a writer are you allowed to be to be able to post something you've written just for the sake of writing in this thread? Asking for myself..

    :D

    You can post whatever you like as long as you are comfortable with doing so. And as long as it isnt potentially triggering I guess.

  8. Do you see any other changes I should make, like trying to rewrite the longer lines into shorter forms or sans these two mistakes, do you think it's fine as it is?

    I felt whimsical this morning and wanted to write a haiku based on earlier failed attempts to use the word "hammock" in a haiku. I hope you all enjoy this and I hope to start work on my haikus when I've graduated. Everything I was going to do has been pushed back (a bit).

    Actually I'm trying to write about the issues of the society which are associated with the modern era. I don't know how to start but I'm sure that I want to write about it.

    Thanks in advance :)

    I have no experience writing non fiction so I am not sure what help I can offer unfortunately. Other than basic stuff like make sure you devote a lot of time to research and planning.

  14. Yep research research and more research.
    And personal experience will help. You have to relate to connect with the reader.

  15. You are the artist. I could change things but I would rather you keep writing as you and I can give you tips along the way. Honestly it's good.

    1100 words written for the introduction today. It was a tough day. It's always hard overcoming the inertia when starting a new section of the thesis, but I've picked up some pace. I have an outline of what to do tomorrow. I'll just sleep on it now.

    Made some steady progress on the introduction. Wrote 2103 words, barely eclipsing my previous highest one day total.
    I literally have three or four sentences in the first paragraph to wrap up the first draft, but I just can't get it to flow and connect with the next paragraph. I'll have to start fresh tomorrow.

    On another note, my weekly total for last week ending Saturday 28th was 9898 words. It's the most I've written in a week. It's largely because I was writing a literature review that didn't require me to do data analysis and computations. I guess you can say it's the closest thing to a very short novel.

    Anyways, tomorrow is to wrap the introduction and then get started on the last thesis chapter, the conclusions. It's all coming together.
