Today I decided to sit down and write out the chapter’s narrative anew, along with a storyboard of the sections I need to include.
This is all in my head, and indeed down on paper in the previous draft, but it is just not in the right order! In fact, on reflection, the version I have is not far from where it needs to be. I think it will probably take me a couple of weeks of hard slog to get it in good shape. I then need to carefully work through all the feedback and revise accordingly. After working hard today, I now feel I have an achievable plan to submit Draft 2 of Chapter 2 to my supervisors by 9 December. My hope then would be that I would be able to complete the second draft of Chapter 3 by Christmas, leaving the Introduction and Conclusion to be rewritten accordingly in the New Year.
I love a plan, but I think I am back on track and can see the path from A to B.
