This is intended to be an encouragement for hubby who started on his PhD in philosophy in the fall of 1997. I decided last spring/summer that he would finish writing and successfully defend his dissertation by the end of this summer.
He got some work done last summer ending with a total of 103 pages. Unfortunately almost all work ground to a screeching halt with the beginning of the fall semester and teaching and grading duties. Hubby only managed to bump the page total up to 117.
Now that teaching and grading responsibilities for the semester are pretty much over with it is dissertation crunch time! I've cooked up a schedule for him to make sure that he puts in some hours every day on his writing. Check back daily/weekly (I haven't decided yet how often to tally up the page total) to see how things are going.
