Must admit to going back to stage one of the second chapter and even further back to rewrite an intro, so that the rest of the essay chapters fall into place. I am trying to figure what it is that I am missing, why the bloody thing lacks coherence. If I am centering in on 'the mother' what does that mean in the instances that you have chosen. On and on and on. I have got to get a handle on this, or I can't write the diss, pure and simple.
A lot of head scratching today and a lot of referring back to the intro and the first chapter (oh and the 'recommendations to both). What is it that I am not conveying? Beats me right now. Maybe I am not signposting the bloody obvious again - perhaps I am expecting them to be mind readers. A bit 'FFS, you MUST have read the book, haven't you?' (and dare I say it, I sense that my lecturer has not = male and specialising in war history and Victorian imperialism). I I maybe speaking out of turn and he is a sweet guy.
Going to bed. This is going to be my ever waking breath from now til May 3rd. 67 days then - or less, actually as I am meant to get it to the media centre way before this. Brilliant.
