So I’m in the middle of two weeks break from (paid) work to write the final paper. I realised a few months ago that the only way I would be able to maintain focus and give the subject justice was to spend whole days solely working on it.
The tactic has paid off and so far I have 50% of the paper written, albeit in a draft form that will need careful editing and revising. But great start. Having the time to think and meander on the papers core topics and read research in more depth has also opened new lines of thought and led me to find further contextual research.
So far the introduction, several appendices, and the first question have been written. Next week I plan to concentrate on section 2, the campaign question, conclusions and critical reflection.
