Dissertation coaching
Help for writing a dissertation

Day One

We’ll begin with a planning session (face-to-face if you're in or near Charlottesville, VA; by phone if you’re not). During the meeting, we’ll accomplish three things:

1. We’ll discuss your project, including:

  • an overview of your topic and the history of what, if any, work you've already done;
  • your work space and how organized your materials are; and
  • writing processes that have (or haven’t) worked for you in the past—e.g., time of day, setting, length of writing intervals, etc.

2. We’ll decide on a thirty-day goal, then discuss what you’d like to accomplish during your first week.

3. I'll explain the techniques you’ll use to establish a comfortable, productive writing process and rhythm and begin building momentum.
