Ad previously written, I will attempt to get ch2 finished by midnight tomorrow. Plus side is that some very important books turned up today - thank you, Amazon Prime!
But onto basic maths - I have to divide up the dissertation word count roughly as follows.
1,200 = Intro
2,700 = Ch x 3
0,500 = Conclusion
0,198 = Spare Words (just in case)
I need to shave off 159 words before I close ch2 - however, that might not be a difficult as I think. I seem to have doubled up in a couple of areas i.e. said the same thing in a different way and on more than one occasion. I will keep to the deadline as being 23:59 tomorrow night, so I can start fresh and well for the overhaul of ch 3. Clicketty click.
Need to get rid of 107 now, but will leave it til tomorrow, as I have gone word blind. I have also added Word Dumps to the end of each essay so I can either dump what I don't need at the bottom, moving them to another Dump Document, or put in reserved quotes from other essays, so I can mingle and blend from the the dump into the essay.
I have totted up that I have got about 9,550 words all in, but with a long way to go, which means getting a transcript of the intro, pasted onto a new document - boil it down to its key components, then use them as a checklist against everything I have written in the up-and-coming chapters. Plus I have a 500 word Conclusion to write. At this rate, I believe I might be on time instead of running perilously behind. Then I will have to do a crash course in 'Nightmare Abbey' - a pain as there aren't any Audiobooks that cover it.
