PhD Dissertation Writing

Spent the last 5 days in my study writing my dissertation, all 277 pages of it.

Kids, don't try this at home. It's hazardous to your health!



  1. Hey...I'm doing that too. Though not 277 pages long.

  2. Hi U-Liang,

    That's good. What is your research on?

    Mine is on spiritual formation in Malaysian churches.

  3. Working on a PhD is very dangerous ... can result in Permanent Head Damage. LOL

    Which seminary / university are you studying in?

  4. Hi Paul,

    That's what the warning for. Permanent head Damage.

    I'm with the Asia Graduate School of Theology.

  5. Congrates, Alex! It's not only hazardous, but also contagious!! :)

    Hey, I wonder how many full-time housekeepers or Alfreds do you hire to tidy your study room?? :)

  6. Hi Alex, congrats on finishing your dissertation. Look forward to read it soon.

  7. u wrote yr thesis in 5 days?!

  8. Hi Tony,

    Looking forward to your comments when I do.

  9. Hi Sze Zeng,

    Only one Alfred in this 'Batcave' of my mind.

  10. Hi Alwyn,

    That's the way I write. I find it difficult to write in parts and installments. My writing style is to download it all in one go. And I have to find protected writing time in my busy schedule. Then I just write continuously until there is nothing else to say. The writing is the culmination of three years of reading, researching, thinking and reflecting, i.e. agonising over my research area. This is my style of writing and I am sure everyone has their own style.

  11. Paul,
    PhD is NOT permanent head damage!! It's Preaching, Healing and Deliverance!!!!

    Sorry, Ales, for hijacking your blog... :-)
