There was a flurry activity going on earlier this week and to close the last one as I prepared to submit the first draft of my Thesis Proposal. The proposal will be the final deliverable for this class so it is good to have a draft done with six weeks remaining. However, that does not give me time to relax and enjoy life as there is still much work to be done. It felt good to put pen to paper (or as the modern writer works, fingers to keys) and begin putting my thoughts in verbal/textual form. I had previously made visualizations that captured what I was researching and synthesizing but had yet to write logically about my research area. While it is tough to compose articulate, academic, appropriate prose, it felt good that my work and research areas came together as I had hoped knew they would.
There are 5 core sections of the proposal and I was able to get a healthy start on four of them. The fifth has a significant skeletal structure of my reasoning, but not a comprehensive argument. Regardless, I feel good about the state of my proposal and actually feel like a small weight has been lifted off of my shoulders.
Please read and send me or post any comments that you have. Any feedback will be embraced.
