Writing a PhD Dissertation Without a Hitch

That is a tall order! A dissertation is a formal, technical, structured, and organized document that sets forth the proof of your thesis; it cannot be simplified into an informal work. Nevertheless, there are measures you can take to avoid any major hitches and glitches. The first and most important trick is to be scrupulously organized. You will run into problems if you let yourself be casual and lazy about this.

You can do a few basic things to make your dissertation-writing project smoother.

Do not procrastinate: Almost everyone is seen postponing dissertation writing for a later time. True, it is intimidating to do something completely new, formal, and extensive; still your best bet is to start early and KEEP working on it. Sit down with a pencil and a piece of paper and find out why you are delaying this.

Manage your time: Make a weekly schedule and stick to it. Effective time management depends on your ability to allocate chunks of time to broad categories instead of trying to schedule everything you do to the minute.

Your productive hours: Are you an early bird or a night owl? Which hours of the day you feel at the peak of your energy? What time of the day is usually packed with activity for you? Follow your clock and use your productive hours for writing your dissertation.

Find a suitable place: You are most likely to avoid hitches if you sit down in a space that you usually use for most of your favorite activities. It does not have to be a table – although that would be good for your posture and health; it can be a couch or the floor.

Avoid or manage stressors:

Other internal factors need to be addressed too. It is a good idea to seek professional help if you find yourself unable to sleep, or eating too little or too much, or you feel low most of the time. Ditto for jitteriness and nerves
