I'm excited and a bit nervous that my Phd supervisors have asked me to send them a map of the writing I'll produce for them between now and July. I have to write the first draft of my thesis, around 80,000 words, split up into around 7 plus or minus two chapters. As writing 2000 words was really hard three years ago when I started this degree, I'm surprised and pleased that I imagine ever writing so much. Sadly, not many people will read my work. For a PhD, perhaps three people will read the thesis, then it gets bound and put in a corner of the library to gather dust and no-one ever reads it again.
