A Common Problem?


I'm a few days away from a chapter submission. It might seem a bit odd, but a common experience of mine is to feel a bit helpless at such times. Having made the changes that my supervisor recommended, I feel that my revision readings have descended into a synonym hunt! While I don't want to make substantial alterations at this stage (my supervisor advised against it), I feel like I should be doing something with the chapter.

This chapter is due to be read by two other faculty members. It is quite long (almost 30,000 words), so reading carefully from start to finish is extremely time-consuming.

I would like to know what other people do at such times.
