Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone has any helpful tips on writing up?
I've been officially out of the lab and writing since June. I've two papers published (Two chapter completed) but now I'm struggling. Does anyone have any tips on how to stay focused and motivated? How do you write that dreaded chapter (One chapter I’ve started on five different occasions but can't get passed the methods)?
I am writing my thesis in paper format, it going to have 6 working chapters, alongside introduction and discussion. Two chapters are done, two are submitted to my main supervisor awaiting feedback, but the last two I just can't be bothered with.

Any tips, tricks or ideas to stay motivated would be greatly appreciated!

I agree with TreeofLife. It a practical subject. I teach undergrad labs in it. You can know all the theory behind the processes but that won't make you any good at doing the experiments.

I have worked thoughout my phd (currently going into year 4 and at write up stage ).It is doable. Last year I work about 15-20 hours a week giving maths grinds to school kids. Its hard work, time consuming and you do be wreaked, but you have to make ends meet somehow. I get a small stipend and my fee paid so I need to work to pay bills.My supervisors are aware and fully supportive. Would i recommend it ... No ..but you do what you have to do.
