Outlines, Outlines, Outlines I received a question regarding the transfer of notes from other programs to Circus Ponies Notebook: An outline makes sense to organize the material you have in a red thread and collect all information in one place that you can use with Scrivener to write you dissertation in one go. What is the problem? Do I have problems making a coherent package out of my material?
I wrote this on someone else's similar post earlier this year. You just have to fucking do it.
Every day, I just have to fucking do it. Try to eat well and make a little time for exercise. I know people that take adderall to make this sort of thing work for them. There will be time for that later. If you find you're in the zone, roll with it.
Get up and move around periodically. Give yourself a little treat when you accomplish your goal. Here's what I would do. You've got to schedule yourself. I would wake up, exercise, eat a good breakfast, get coffee and then immediately get to work, with the goal of having my words done by 5: That means you get to look forward to a work free evening of cooking dinner and taking a mental break.
If your daily deadline is just 'before I go to bed,' you'll still be staring at words at 10 PM.
Plus the later in the day it gets, the more anxious you'll get, and the harder it will be to get it done. You'll think you can 'make up for it tomorrow,' but you won't. Get ahead whenever you can, because some days you will get behind.
Sartre had a similar sort of routine, but he substituted coke and other uppers for coffee during the day and dancing and drinking for mental down time in the evening. Other than that, just stay hydrated and eat protein. Put a calendar up on the wall.
The first day you hit words, put an X over that day. The next day, another X. The goal is to not break the chain. I would also reward myself after I put that X up there with something nice.
A piece of chocolate or a beer or going outside for a quick walk. My personal rule was that I was not allowed to get up out of the chair -- for any reason -- until I was done my quota. A rule specifically like that may or may not help you, but any personal rule goes far to ensure that your daily quota is met.
Plan your work and work your plan. Whatever you do, do not skip a day. Write your daily quota, and if you can squeeze an extra hundred or two words out there, it's only going to make it easier.
FWIW, I found that writing the damn thing was the least part of it, compared to all the research and organization. Actually shitting it out wasn't too bad at all. I stopped once I was in the headspace of writing regularly every day, which was also when I got to the part of the dissertation that involved writing up my data analysis and results a lot of graphs, charts, and tables.
Butt in chair, hands on keyboard, internet off. I do my best work in mornings, so am was typing time.
At 9am, I could take a break.I created the outline before I started to write, during the last year of my PhD. But thinking back, it would have been much easier to create the outline during the whole PhD thesis time, as soon as the topic and the first experiments were decided.
