I woke today with new words from my thesis. As you may know from my writing, I have an adversarial relationship with my thesis. I received my lowest media studies grade for it and I never felt the heart connection to it, that it deserved and required. I also let stress interfere way too much in the process.
The relationship with your supervisor in this process is pivotal and mine was flawed. I could not voice what I needed and he could not meet me at a level I needed. This challenge was made harder with the death of the supervisor I wanted and their mutual dislike.
I have to rewrite it. Yep 40, 000 words. I am leaving the flawed thesis in place and am working with what I have. Although I will take on board what the markers felt was missing. I am not sure I can find peace with this process until I do do so
I am dreading and excited about this. I will post updates but will keep the work private until complete. This feels right for me to do.
