How to write 10,000 words a day – The Thesis Whisperer In a previous post Peta Freestone and Liam Connell wrote about the ideas behind Thesis Bootcamp. Jan 16, 2015 I’m galled to discover that a phd thesis in Australia is shorter than the minimum requirement for a master’s thesis in my country. Whereas a phd thesis in my country is more like 200 000 words or 4-500 pages! And to think phd holders are considered equal from one country to another despite the massive imbalance in the requirements to get one.
This Chinese PhD Student Just Wrote an 80,000-Word. Much of what Rachel did conformed with what I suggest in my earlier post, but I couldn’t bring myself to really believe Rachel’s productivity claims. Imagine if you could reliably write 10,000 words a day, how long would it take to finish your thesis… The Thesis Bootcamp concept is simple – put a whole lot of Ph D students in a room for a whole weekend and set them the goal of writing 20,000 words each. At every Thesis Bootcamp we have run, at least one student will achieve this goal, and many write many more words than they thought they would. That’s according to an 80,000-word doctoral dissertation by a 34-year-female PhD candidate in China’s Shanxi Province, written in an effort to find out how spices impact the taste of meat.
Graduate research degrees - Faculty of IT Monash University Well, Rachel says she can, with three conditions: 1) Know what you are going to write before you write it 2) Set aside a protected time to write, and 3) Feel enthusiastic about what you are writing I read the post with interest. Thesis Bootcamp (and the veteran’s days which follow) is a total program designed to help late stage Ph D students finish their thesis document (In some countries this document is called the ‘dissertation’, but I will use the Australian term ‘thesis’ here). Monash IT graduate research – leading the way. Monash is the only university in the prestigious Australian Group of Eight with a faculty dedicated solely to Information Technology IT.
