As you begin to think about creating this major project, there are many decisions to be made.
The success of your dissertation will rest on many of your preliminary decisions. The pre-steps to writing can make a difference.
This piece will take almost a year to do, it will be the most important project for your academic career, it can help you to gain employment, it will be argued, and you will publish some or all of it.
You need to love your topic, as you will spend a year with it. Select a topic that interest you and that will be relative to your ultimate career goals. You can do a keyword search online to see if there are a million other papers on your topic and if there is research on your topic. If too many people have written on it or no research exists, then move along and select another subject for this important project.
Do all of your research and interviews at the beginning of the project. By doing this, you will be able to write with little to no interruption in flow. There may be one or two times that you have to research or interview a bit more, but having this work done upfront will save you hours of time. Go ahead and do the interviews and research first.
