Well, finally, a return to the net. You could be excused for thinking I’d run off somewhere to never return, but have no fear, I have only been suffering from a reasonably common academic malaise that I like to call ‘thesis aversion’. Apparently many PhD writers go through this, where the idea of even looking at our research makes us run faster than a certain Mr Bolt in the other direction. This is for no other reason than that we have been ‘eating’ intellectual cereal without milk for 4 or more years. No matter how interesting it is to someone else, to us it is like reading Fifty Shades of Grey over, and over, and over ..
Never fear however, although many of us run, it is often only in circles. Thus we find ourselves back where we began …
Like all humble returns, this will be short and sweet, because I know I have to write something, but I just don’t know what that is. So the easiest way to get out of doing anything substantive is just to go: Taadaaaaah! Here’s the link to the thesis if you want to take a look: http://researcharchive.vuw.ac.nz//handle/10063/2366
Look at that! I’ve put up 100,000 words in the blink of an eye! Now why couldn’t the writing process have been this easy?
For those of you sensible enough not to click through to my swipe at academic credibility a.k.a. thesis, stay tuned, results discussions are coming Thanks for your patience.
