Feeling overwhelmed and intimidated by your dissertation is natural but don’t let it get you down. Writing a dissertation is completely a new experience and a challenge. By definition a dissertation is ’’a long essay on a particular subject” it is not like writing a book.
There is unfortunately no reading on assignments, no deadlines from your professors, no regular discussions with your fellow students and no one to tell you what to do you are definitely on your own. This can feel intimidating seeing that this is something that you have never done before. Writing your dissertation is a challenging and complex process. Regardless if you love writing or not your dissertation is important and it is part of your course to complete your degree. The studying that you have to do as part of your course is hard enough and complex because of the research that has to be done.
