Summary Research shows that five strategies correlate with the successful completion of a dissertation: Establishing a consistent writing routine ; Working with a support group ; Consulting your advisor ; Understanding your committee's expectations ; Setting a realistic and timely schedule. Building on these insights, this book is for anyone who needs help in preparing for, organizing, planning, scheduling, and writing the longest sustained writing project they have encountered, particularly if he or she is not receiving sufficient guidance about the process, but also for anyone looking to boost his or her writing productivity. The author uncovers much tacit knowledge, provides advice on working with dissertation advisors and committee members, presents proven techniques for the prewriting and writing stages of the dissertation, sets out a system for keeping on schedule, and advocates enlisting peer support.
