This morning’s page count was 151. I worked today to finish the draft of Chapter 3, which put my page count by the end of the day at 165.
I want to think that I’m kicking ass at this whole “finishing a dissertation” thing, but I have yet to hear what my advisor thinks of the writing I’ve done so far. I sent the first three chapters to him today. We’ll see what he thinks.
I’m so tired I don’t trust my own judgement about my writing right now. A certain someone has decided that right now is a GREAT time to have a sleep regression and I vehemently disagree and OMG I AM SO TIRED.

Way to go! Hope your advisor comes back to you with good feedback
Thanks! I saw him this morning at lab meeting and he said based on what he’s read so far (which is not all 120 pages of what I sent him!), it looks good. My writing is “fun to read”, apparently :)
I’m pulling for you, Whitney — you can do this! And revisions are always easier than filling up a blank page. What’s your target page count (or do you even have one)?
Thanks, Ann! So true about revisions – I’m always working to convince my writing students of this. No target page count, though I suspect I’ll probably end up around 200 pages? I’ve got 6 chapters, and now have full drafts of 3 of them, and then partial drafts of the rest, so I’m definitely making good progress.
