Congratulations Dr Eska! As another distant student, I salute you and hope to follow in your footsteps very soon!

I am in a similar position but I have to finish by the end of May (but I work part time). How about an accountability thread - you could post here how many words you manage and I could do the same?

Thanks don't worry, I wasn't going to ask her outright! It's great to hear a bit more about the system though, as I am never on campus, I really don't know how these things work.

Did you attempt to answer the questions? If you couldn't answer them at all then that would probably be regarded as evidence!

An additional question to this topic - next week there is a seminar on at a nearby university and there is someone presenting who, on paper, sounds like a good fit as an external examiner. I am going to the seminar anyway but just wondered if I should introduce myself with an eye to inviting her to be my external, if appropriate? Or is this not the done thing?

Thanks for the encouragement! I have started using an app which tells me when I will finish if I continue at the current rate - at the moment it is on July 2017!! Hopefully this will be a wake up call that I need to work faster (I also work two days a week and am surrounded by small kids when school is out so I need to go faster on my working days - like today!) I have to get this done though.

I have to submit my first full draft in May and I still have another 20,000 words to write and I seem to be getting further away from my target and understanding less and less each day. Is writing up this hard for everyone or am I particularly thick? Just not sure I will ever finish anything of the required standard. I am a distance student and don't really have anyone to discuss my work with and am full of doubts. Every day I seem to reread and unpick what I have already done and don't get any further.

Hello all - would like a bit of practical help if possible. Here is the situation. I currently have eight Word files which are all chapters of my thesis and I need to make them into one long file. I am also using Mendeley to do automatic referencing. How do I make one long file? Cut and paste into a new document? What can possibly go wrong!!? Also did you print out your whole thesis and correct it on the paper version? I can't seem to really spot mistakes reading on the screen (sorry trees).

My supervisor has suggsted someone as an external examiner and I am a bit worried that they are not suitable. They have published a lot on the subject matter that my thesis deals with but they use a different (and competing) approach to analysis. Does this matter? I would hate for them to say that my approach was wrong and that I had to redo everything!

I'm doing narrative analysis using positioning theory which is quite detailed.

I am also working in sociolinguistics and it is taking me much longer than I expected!

If I were you I would look at your data and start transcribing. Then you will have a better idea of how long it will actually to take you to transcribe. Depending on the type of analysis that you want to do, the transcription times will change considerably.
