Hi all, I've just finished the chapter 1/2 I've been working on forever - it's now 7,000 words. And I think it's... brilliant! ha, ha there I said it. I felt ecstatic last night, and for some reason really wanted to see my nan and tell her - she died about ten years ago though. But I'm soooo please with myself right now.
I know when I look at it again it won't seem as good, but I just wanted to share this feeling, for all those who fear there is no joy in PhDing - and just to tell you all!!
Hey Eska, that sounds like a good feeling to hang onto! Well done you! I always wish my nan had known I was doing a PhD- if I pass okay I'll be the first Dr in the family and she'd have been so proud!! Not sure about my grandad though- he was still asking me how 'school' was when I was 25, I'm not sure he'd have grasped the concept of a PhD bless him! Best, KB
To reiterate the congrats and thanks from other posts - it really does give us all a boost to hear about the good times.
There's nothing like a good sentence to make you smile, a good paragraph is heaven but a whole chapter 8-) and a brilliant chapter well (gift)
Thanks for all your responses. I had another look at it, and it's not perfect, but I still rather chuffed with myself. It looks like a proper piece of writing with something to say.
This is quality, if anyone fancies half an hour of top flight procrastination:
