6 Tips for Writing Your Dissertation

On this episode, we discuss six strategies and tips you can use in writing your dissertation. Let's face it—writing a dissertation can be difficult and overwhelming. The goal of this video is to help you avoid the common mistakes writers make during the dissertation planning and writing processes.

Here's a recap of the strategies we cover:

  • Tip 1: Start somewhere, anywhere. It doesn't have to be at the beginning. In fact, it probably won't be.
  • Tip 2: Separate the writing and editing processes. When you sit down in the early stages to write your dissertation, don't stop to make corrections and don't expect perfection.
  • Tip 3: Don't try to make your writing at this stage sound "academic." Rather, just write from the heart.
  • Tip 4: Write in chunks and out of order.
  • Tip 5: Organize your citations on note cards, or the digital equivalent, from the very beginning.
  • Tip 6: Write as early in the day as possible and set a goal for writing at least 1 page per day.
